A newspaper as part of distracted-workshop, a collaborative split/fountain exhibition at the 26th International Biennial of Graphic Design Brno, Czech Republic in 2014. Designed and edited by designed by Jayme Yen and Layla Tweedie-Cullen, with contributions by Xin Cheng, Jack Hadley, Chris Berthelsen, Nell May (NZ), Anne Fenton and Kristin Posehn (US).
distracted-workshop was an extension on the split/fountain publication series distracted-reader, initiated and edited by Allan Smith and Layla Tweedie-Cullen.
We offer carry-on tables and foldable chairs, for futurist thought forms and learning-bay function; costumes for kinder-art; follies for leaning; stop-motion school house for stilt-walking free-time; and rigorously nuanced instructional play. Furthermore thought-trees and speculative clay will follow through models with stick-charts supporting. If clay-scale and brain-mud fashioning speech, then colour for diagrams, and annotate feelings for charting display. Demountable, mobile, performing array; tool-being art-class, design maps for all; invent for distraction, collate for next station, game-board configuring, design show for touring; frameworks in score-line with paint-and-draw screen wall; discursive convivial, whenever will fabricate, game-plan for several will liberate many. – Allan Smith
