A series of site-specific pattern installations in the Nan Tait Centre, a Grade II listed building in Barrow-in-Furness, as part of a month-long residency with Art Gene. The patterns take elements of the building’s existing architectural detail as the basis for large-scale displays that highlight the sometimes overlooked decoration and detail that we see every day.
The exhibition consisted of three installations:
1, a lasercut card design that was created from the patterns in the existing window leading, which was displayed along the top panel of the mezzanine floor
2, three displays of applied vinyl on the glazed brick wall in reception, created from the mosaic patterns on the floor and the confetti that could sometimes be found throughout the building
3, coloured applied vinyl creating a stained-glass effect on a panel of clear glass at the end of the main ground floor corridor, formed from a tile effect taken from the mosaic floors.
