Patrick Thomas Workshop
Documenting the Everyday
The aim of the workshop was to develop research, editing and design skills. Participants had to identify and document a subject found within a given (500m) radius of Elisava. They were expected to deliver a 12–24 page publication produced using a combination of a minimum of three print techniques: Risograph, laser prints, rubber stamps, collage, etc.
It was a project about experimentation, observation and local discovery—finding beauty in and celebrating the ordinary.
It culminated in an exhibition of the finished publications with accompanying promotional posters.

POOL talks about time and its value. In a reality based on overproduction and overdesign, where we usually inform ourselves in a superficial way, POOL proposes cultural content in a slow and reflective way.

audience of current reality.
It is build with clean and no artifice graphics that break the usual structure of title+image. In POOL, the reader decides the way he wants to read.
