Motifs from the realm of decorative art and design dance and evolve on screen, tracing a journey from the ancient, analogue and physical, to the modern, digital and abstract. Craft techniques such as tiling, mosaic, marquetry, weave and stitch all originated as mathematical pattern structures and here are bought full circle, ‘re-encoded’ as algorithms.

Coinciding with a sister installation at the Museum for Islamic Art in Jerusalem, these dynamic interpretations of Paisley pattern are inspired by both the iconic design and the prized freshwater pearl mussel that used to thrive in the White Cart river running through Paisley town. Each unique, generative form has been specially seeded for Aberdeen.
