About this project

Self-Avoiding Walk is a playful response to the conundrum, “how to make an artwork without making decisions about composition, colour and line?” Pass decisions on to others. With non-collaborative collaborators, ideas, not people, become the decision makers. Thank you: Rocchini and Life of Riley (Wikimedia Commons) for your mathematical diagram of a self-avoiding walk; Pi, for being our guide; and fashion designer, Julien Macdonald for enthusing about bugle beads, the final piece of the puzzle.
