Central Station, Channel 4 and ISO present Shadow Screen with Paul Kerlaff.

Open to all!
Submissions are welcome by creatives of all disciplines for a piece of work which can be interpreted as a design pattern for With Kerlaff’s Shaddow Screen.

A shortlist of ten entrants will be selected for review by an invited panel. We are aiming to promote critical engagement, feedback and positive value for participants.

One design will be chosen for prototyping and will recieve a cash prize of £500, but a licence agreement may be offered to any number of the shortlisted entrants.

What is Shadow Screen?
Shadow Screens are sheets of rubber or aluminium. They are water jet or laser cut using patterns designed by leading textile artists. The Shadow Screens are used as freestanding room dividers, hanging panels and window panels in a variety of architectural and interior design projects.

Any patterns used remain the Intellectual Property of the artists and a percentage royalty is paid through a licence agreement with Paul Kerlaff. Current designers include Timorous Beasties and Jacqueline Poncelet.

Your Design
Be as creative as you like. Although the pattern range to date has been photograms of natural forms (maple leaves, flowers, birds) we are keen to see what else could work with the model. The sky’s the limit.
