Learning Journeys – I SΦ With My Little Eye

The Artground welcomes school visits from pre-schoolers and primary school pupils. Join us on our learning journeys and pupils will receive a resource kit containing information about our featured programmes and suggested activities and enjoy a workshop conducted by our artists/facilitators.

From Nov 9th 2017 till April 1st 2018,  students will get to play and discover “I SΦ with my Little Eye”, an interactive geometric visual space designed by artist Shahrul Jamili.

The artist was inspired by the golden ratio that we find within nature and the body. The golden radio defines the spiral arrangements that provide equal sunlight in plants. In our bodies, we find this divine proportion in our anatomy. The artist found relationships within the primary syllabus, where geometry can be explored through angles, fractions, sculpture and essentially through play in this interactive geometric visual space.
