Thankyou to Censta and Paul Kerlaff – and the other judges for shortlisting my design – so happy to have been picked, especially against such other great designs.
My design has been adapted from a project I started at college. It was a conceptual project in which I explored how electro magnetic radiation was present in the home, leaking from various different technology. I made maps of EM leakage in my home, and represented the ‘Smog’ shapes that were formed with various patterns. I was inspired by the structured form of traditional craft patterns in quilts and other textiles, as a direct contrast to the boundless invisibility of the EM waves.
It was very interesting to take the project in a new direction and consider a different format and material. I think my design could be an effective Shadow Screen with or without this original concept in mind.
