Artists explored ideas about pattern and complexity that drew on the latest scientific and mathematical theories. Their paintings, installations and interactive artworks featured mesmerising optical patterns and digitally-generated complex behaviour. The exhibition coincided with the March issue of Artlink magazine on Art, Pattern and Complexity, and was open from 16 February – 16 May 2012.

Pricking 1.2 by MESNE Design Studio was a digital/multi media piece comprising an interactive multi-touch table and custom developed design software – allowing the user to create intricate lace patterns in an ever growing catalogue. Each lace pattern created during the exhibition was instantly printed on a 6×4″ index card and automatically uploaded to MESNE Design Studio’s Flickr account. View the art created by visitors.
