2014 from the MAN A series, digital print direct to Kappa, dimensions variable and App.
Drawing inspiration from the visual language of ‘dazzle’ camouflage, developed by artist Norman Wilkinson in WWI, MAN A is a series of seemingly flat geometric surfaces, activated by a user’s mobile app to reveal performances.
The work reminds us of both tribal war paint and Zebra’s stripes, playing on the idea of concealment and revelation with the technology acting as a catalyst.
Using the app on your mobile device scan the installation looking for the concealed markers.
