Wallpaper 1 – The Roadhouse. For the first 14 days of September I installed wallpaper on the streets of Manchester for the buildup to the opening of the Refuge. The first instalment was outside my favourite club that had now sadly been shut down, The Roadhouse.
While I was away on tour I got asked to exhibit at the 10×10 exhibition for DesignMCR. I was researching Chaos Theory while on the beach and tried to work out how I could put chaos into my design work. I managed this by creating some patterns then really quickly deleting lines off the patterns to add that element of randomness. I started reading about the philosophical term Qualia as part of the Chaos Theory and a line jumped out at me:
Qualia – Individual Instances of Subjective, Conscious Experience.
The exhibition was sponsored by GF Smith paper so I ordered in some lovely 270gsm stock. The weekend after getting back I printed the work then got the line about Qualia laser cut out of acrylic mirror.
