Alex’s 1st poster – “Work Work Work”
(Alex): So I’ve finally had the opportunity to contribute my first poster! Hoorah. As is ‘subtlety’ suggested by its title, much of the last couple of months has seen me glued to my laptop, desperately trying to keep afloat with what has felt like a rather overwhelming workload. It therefore felt appropriate to use this as inspiration for the first theme/event.

Phil’s 8th poster – “Random Pattern Workshop” – Making patterns from dice throws at the Maritime Museum.
(Phil): I was asked by the lovely Anna Shortland to run a Teen / Family workshop at the Aberdeen Maritime Museum for their summer events programme. She & I loved the outcome of the “Colourclash” pattern workshop I ran, so decided to run it for Teenagers & Families. It’s a simple premise, of letting a dice throw call the shots in order to make a pattern “cell” & use the computer to create a repeat pattern from it. The delight in the faces of the participants is ace, from bemusement to joy when seeing a simple set of shapes & colours become a vibrant repeat pattern. The kids were super chuffed with the results. I’ve used the “offcuts” here to create the base image.
