Spotted a sign for this ‘Pattern Festival’ last year while down in Cork last year. I know the festival is not actually a festival of patterns, but it got me thinking. A pattern festival… how delightful would that be! A pattern festival… a festival celebrating patterns, their making and their development. Would be savage, definitely niche, but I would definitely attend and have a whale of a time, that’s for sure.
Tent Pattern-decorating workshops (using hand cut stencils/tape/large paper motifs and spray paint.)
Screenprint your sleeping bag Workshop
Tool could play, they use fibonacci sequence to build in some of their songs – for example, Lateralus.
There could be a William Morris stage. Have no idea what would happen on it but some epic pattern shit, that’s for sure. Pattern jams for making collaborative mental patterns would be good.
Apple Mac PhotoBooth inspired photo kiosks for tripping out to you and your mirrored self mates.
Optical illusion tunnels and panels.
Pattern based nature walks – followed by workshops. Fibonacci tastic, of course.
And HEAPS more stuff… maybe even a synchronized swimming style concert, for shits and giggles.
Performers that do things like the Daft Punk ‘Around the World’ video.
Have only just started thinking about this, but, yes, I quite like the sound of that. Ballyyesplease Pattern Festival, you are now pronounced open for discussion dans ma tete.
