Verity Griscti – Connect The Dots

“Connect The Dots” is an experiment in emergent art making. Beginning with a white canvas with a faint grid and a randomly placed dot, visitors will be invited to contribute one, and only one, new dot in an adjacent square in the colour of their choice. Over the duration of Maker Festival, the chain of dots will lengthen and change direction continuously altering the work. The chain, path, and appearance of the final painting will never have a central designer or a maker – it will be shaped by the crowd.

Hands-on activity at the Festival:
Making the painting. Visitors will be encouraged to add a step (i.e., a dot) to a large scale random walk with acrylic paint.
