Art Activity @MRG STICK IT


A collaborative drawing process inspired by artist Briony Barr

A collaboration between Australian artist (Briony Barr) and physicist (Andrew Melatos), Drawing on Complexity combines collaborative, expanded drawing with the study of complex systems to create ‘art experiments’, large-scale floor drawings made by groups of participants using coloured electrical (PVC) tape. The participants (called ‘agents’) enact the drawing by following simple rules determining placement of tape and collaboration with other agents. Through this process, complex patterns emerge in the drawing, within the boundaries of the system.

What you need:

·         Rolls of coloured electrical tape

·         Scissors

The plan

Draw with electrical tape.

The floor is your canvas ……work alone or in a team
