For this year’s Clerkenwell Design Week, we hosted a site-specific event, which took place in our home at Baker’s Yard, an industrial estate which plays host to an array of businesses including architecture, graphic design, construction, art-mounting and printing.
In response to the daily activities in the yard, where paper is ubiquitous, our event celebrated this material in the form of our installation, Lepidoptera Chromaticity.
The installation was created from the waste products generated by our neighbour, the digital printing company, 1st Byte. Armed with 3 days’ worth of their waste material [usually destined straight for recycling] we turned registration test sheets into 250 multi-coloured origami moths, suspended in a space defined by the drops of waste paper from end -of-rolls, over a bed of shreddings as a garden.
Thank you to 1st Byte, Matteblak and The Betsey Trotwood pub for supporting the event – it was a great success and we couldn’t have done it without you.
And of course a huge thanks to everyone who joined us for a very special evening! x
