Paddy Killer

'Fits Like a Glove' by Paddy Killer. Paddy has arthritis everywhere - gloves do not fit her stiff and deformed hands, so she has drafted this pattern for imagined gloves, enabling someone to make some pairs for her.

I remember visiting Surgeons Hall for the first time, in Edinburgh, just as my body began to show the first contortions of Arthritis, and being amazed at how bones swell, and bend and twist with this disease, not something you really think about until you are dealing with it and the lack of conformity in feet and hands that make shoes and gloves an impossibility. So of course I love this project by Paddy Killer.

‘Patterns are the visualisation of a rhythm in space. This rhythm takes on different shapes and colours to express the different vibrations of whoever is creating it. And it is repetitive and constant because that is the basis of life. The heart and our internal organs are repetitive and constant. They are the bass line of our existence. So, patterns are a portrayal of the bass line of our existence. Making or drawing a pattern is like singing a song. Projecting out your own rhythm, your own vibration. To see it double itself, to have confirmation of your being real.’ Adelaide Cioni

Everyday Yōkai

Everyday Yōkai is a collection of AI generated images based on the creatures of Japanese folklore. Everyday Yōkai asks the question, "What would Yōkai be like if we saw them today?" Keep and eye out and you just might see one.
