Ruth Scheuing has created an interactive site called Walking the Line. Her artistic process begins with a simple digital line that traces the routes of her daily activities and ends with four layers of pattern, colour, images and textures – a collage of factual and fictional information that she finds on the World Wide Web.

Kai Chan’s project, called Everyday Blue, Green, Red and Yellow, was inspired by a two-thousand-year-old Chinese text called the Orchid Pavilion Essay, which is an epilogue to a poetry and drinking party. The essay’s calligraphic style is world-famous for its expressive, cursive elegance and has been revered by artists and scholars for centuries.

Jennifer Angus’s Til Death Do Us Part is a fantastical tale, told in the style of 19th-century children’s literature. The story of an eccentric collector, illuminated through the communicative power of colour, pattern and imagination, expresses the joy that is shared through magic and adventure.
