Come draw your body outline directly onto a sheet of A4 art paper using a two metre long pantograph drawing aid.
Pantographs were used by draughtsmen to enlarge or reduce drawings before the advent of computer aided design.
This is an experimental workshop based on the spherical sculptures made by Nick Sayers from lattices of body silhouettes. He has previously outlined schoolchildren and had their shadows machine cut from recycled plastic to make giant sculptural play structures.
Nick Sayers is an artist and graphic designer based in Brighton. He makes spherical sculptures, shelters and lighting from recycled, reused and repurposed waste materials. These have ranged in size from a 7cm ball of woven measuring tape to a 4-metre dome of estate agent signs. His work explores the beauty of maths and the creative possibilities of recycling.
Sayers has produced public art sculpture commissions, delivered educational workshops, and given talks on mathematical art at schools and universities.
