This work was produced as part of a residency in
conjunction with Education Queensland’s Art Built-in
program for new buildings.
The work was created as part of a process involving
senior students that included weekly computer
workshops over five months. Students were
introduced to vecor-based software and developed
an understanding of typography before the work
was produced directly from computer file. Students
also visited the manufacturer and were involved in
painting the work.
Each student was asked to express something of
their experience at the school and the challenge of
the project was to allow for individual expression
within the context of a cohesive outcome. The
equation provides a structure for the work as well
as being appropriate for a school. The non-english
phrases were provided by students from Mexico and
Malaysia while the phrase “Early Morning” refers to
the 7:30am start for senior students.
