This is a participatory art project about hexagons and cities. The remit is wide , you can interpret it as you choose. Media : 2D - drawing, painting, photography, text .... it's up to you. Just put the your idea on the Hexopolis sheet ( see below for download links) and submit it via Curator Space, deadline 10 April 2015.

HEXOPOLIS is an invented term, assembled from ancient Greek:

HEX meaning 6

-OPOLIS meaning city-state, run by bodies of citizens

Hexopolis is an evolving research and participatory art project. I am showing a selection of my research and interpretations at Pages at The Tetley, Leeds 7-22 March.  Come along to make hexagon love letters and hexaflexagons at the opening event (evening, Friday 6 March). I’m also opening up my research project for crowd-sourced ideas and contributions.

It’s intended to be open and unprescriptive.  You can either print the downloadable sheet as a basis, or just draw a hexagon on whatever surface suits your idea best. It doesn’t have to be a regular hexagon.  No need to send in your original, a photo or scan is fine.

It’s about collecting and sharing ideas, different interpretations, and connections. It’s a Hexopolis in itself: people freely contributing observations about hexagons and cities.

Contributions  may be selected for exhibition,  print or online publication.  Contributions will help shape how the project goes forward.
