FMPD: Design No 1736: A co-created wallpaper design

Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


FMPD: Design No 1736 is a design for wallpaper that was made by working with the Gleneden Post-War Design Archive as an academic whose roles intersect that of artist, researcher, and teacher. The design was produced through a co-creative exchange during a period of lockdown when teaching could only be conducted online. In the session multiple participants drew the components on a digital device that were later saved to a shared online folder so they could be developed into a new designed image. The piece FMPD (Fifteen Minute Photoshop Drawing): Design No 1736 was made with first year students of Textiles from the University of Huddersfield. It has been created through a palimpsestic process of tracing and erasure that took a forgotten design and (re)constructed a new image from it, showing that history is not only some continuous past time but something that can be produced in the present. It considers how we can reinvent ideas from the past and illustrates what can be achieved through effective teamwork.
