Patternbank were drawn to these amazing abstracted architectural drawings from Lekan Jeyifous’ ‘Settlement and City Strategies’ series. Though outputted digitally, the drawings possess a textured and painterly quality as a result of combining hand-drawn sketches, industrial textures, surfaces of deteriorated paper, and digital architectural models.

Laurie Frick’s interest in recording data is not surprising when you know she worked in the technology industry. Frick’s somewhat obsessive counting of steps walked, calories ingested, weight, sleep, time-online, GPS tracks, daily mood as colour and food ingested suddenly becomes more meaningful when looking at the art that she creates from all this data. “I think more and more, data will be presented in fantastical ways, more like art,” she says. “It’s not so much any more about data visualised as graphics. It has to be more beautiful and experiential, something you want to look at.” Take a look at more of her visual recordings at lauriefrick.com
