Motifs from the realm of neoclassical architecture dance and evolve on screen, tracing a journey from the ancient, analogue and physical, to the modern, digital and abstract. Craft techniques such as tiling, mosaic, marquetry, weave and stitch all originated as mathematical pattern structures and here are brought full circle, ‘re-encoded’ as algorithms.

Frances Priest is an artist, designer and maker based in Edinburgh. A graduate of Edinburgh College of Art she is collaborating with Alt-w alumni Sam Healy on the realisation of this project. Frances has exhibited internationally, has work in major public collections, and produced permanent installations in a number of Scottish healthcare settings. | |
