Irregular updates as things progress!
It was great to present this first iteration of the Artwork “From Hardware to Software” to the pupils of Haslingden in Lancashire. These initialled Jacquard Sets are built from the childrens’ designs, having been digitised and laser cut, then manually laced together. Each school will retain its own displayed Set, a snapshot of the pupils involvement in the scheme.
Highlighting the connections between the mechanics of early industrial looms and modern binary software, the workshops included a rare demonstration of a Jacquard card cutting machine.
The Works are part of my involvement in the wider Haslingden 2040 Regeneration project currently in development.

As the Globe in Stockton readies to open after a full refurbishment I am very excited to see the Artwork Stellar unveiled. This 30 metre long lighting threshold chronicles the famous acts that have performed as part of a dynamic light show set in the pavement
