Global Patterns - 1 March - 30 August

Seacourt members where invited to take part in an exhibition exploring the above theme. From the earliest times humans have sought to create patterns visually, socially and through sound. Pattern can be seen within the broader animal world in terms of markings and plumage but the urge to externalise pattern and use it as a cultural signifier is particular to humans. It is this aspect of pattern making that participants where being asked to explore. The use of pattern in cultural artefacts such as flags or emerging through human activity as observed in maps, the built environment or socially in patterns of behaviour. Any culture or time period was open to investigation. This is a Partnership Project with Belfast International Airport.
