Fabulous line up of speakers for SIT's autumn Symposium
Four of the speakers who design, create and innovate work closely with architects and building design:
  • Sophie Smallhorn designed the wonderful colour installation for the Olympic stadium. Her work explores the relationships between colour, volume and proportion. She will be talking about these transitions of scale in her work and how the area between an open ended art commission and the constraints that are particular to a design brief have both inspired and informed her creative process.
  • Alex Haw: architect and director of award winning practice atmos – a practice dedicated to rethinking and improving our spatial world across the scales, from furniture to urban design. Alex will be speaking on the metaphor and practice of weaving in architecture; on the search for sensuality and comfort and narrative trajectories; on threading meaning through spatial experience.
  • Ptolemy Mann works across the spectrum of her chosen field of weaving and beyond. All Ptolemy’s work is rooted in a rigorous appreciation of chromatic spectrums, spatial awareness and the psychological impact of colour. Her work has a powerful impact on the viewer. By contrast her subtle application of colour on a building facade brings calm and integrity which calms the visitor.
  • Anna Glasbrook is a textile artist, designer, installation artist working closely with architects and design consultants, creating vivid sculptural stiched installations.
They will be joined by Margo Selby (textile designer) & Garth Lewis.who are pushing the boundaries of their creative practices.
