Mi Pattern

Mi Pattern live exhibition
Photographer: Marco Kesseler 2014

Professor Rob Kesseler, Chair of Arts, Design & Science curated a live exhibition in the form of a laboratory entitled Mi Pattern.

Mi Pattern was a weeklong celebration and investigation into the fantastic world of pattern under the microscope organised by Rob Kesseler, UAL Chair of Arts, Design & Science.

The Lethaby Gallery in Central Saint Martins became a working laboratory where a collection of microscopes were available to explore a world too small to be seen with the naked eye. The materials we use every day reveal complex textures and patterns when magnified from 20 – 2000x.

Visitors to the gallery were also able to create a new landscape of pattern and in a shift from the micro to macro. The images created were individually printed out on a large format printer to provide material to create a series of pattern books, repositories of micro samples as an archive of the event.
