Artists Gibson/Martelli re-imagine 'dazzle' camouflage as tribal markings for invisible performers, moving within an installation, activated by a special App.

If you can't make it to the exhibition, download markers here: http://www.gibsonmartelli.com/MANA

'MAN A' takes as its starting point the relationship between man & his environment, exploring the use of camouflage, warpaint & tattoos - seen through the prism of neo-tribalism. The subject is hidden in plain sight, the pattern used to confound the eye rather than conceal, to give power to the wearer rather than diminish them.

During WWI artist Norman Wilkinson invented a type of ship camouflage consisting of complex intersecting geometric patterning designed to confuse the enemy. Dazzle camouflage & machine readable markers (Barcodes, Augmented Reality, QR codes) are two opposing ways in which information can be encoded on a surface, one used in wartime for concealment, the other in peacetime as a tracking marker or bearer of information.
