Peter Wilson’s work demonstrates a passion for drawing as much as the architectural project. There is a sense of mechanism inherent throughout his work. He uses his architectural drawing as a tool of representation and research. In 2013 he was awarded the AAA Gold Medal.

Rainbow in your hand (2007)

Kawamura, Masashi

Flipbooks were one of the first examples of animation. A simple book which when the fingers are run over the pages, creates the illusion of the images moving on the page. Masashi Kawamura has taken this idea, however rather than using images, created a simple line of block colours on black paper. When flipped, this creates the illusion of a small rainbow in your hand. Although the trick lasts only a few seconds, its replay value is infinite.
