About this website
The current design of this website is determined by an algorithm. It uses live weather and astronomy data from our location in Oxford, UK to create a unique & unrepeatable composition.
The wind speed is 5mph, so the typography is a little bit distorted.
It's 14:24 – this determines the primary colour and the position of the gradient, and because it's daylight the colour is light rather than dark. Today's date, the 24th of May 2024 causes the contrast to shift and the gradient is rotated too. The gradient is also affected by sunrise at 05:03 and sunset at 20:59.
The UV index is 2.74 so the colours are not very saturated.
The condition is Clouds so the composition is partly obscured by light coloured gradients. There's a 100% cloud layer to match the sky.
This website was designed by Jake Dow-Smith Studio.

Lumigraph Tinctoria – Natural Dyeing Workshop – October 22

Workshop located in, and using produce from, Lumigraph Tinctoria, a collaborative dye garden art project by Roșie McLean and Patrick Mannion

Lumigraph Tinctoria  – Workshop

Sunday, October 22 · 12 – 3pm BST

Elder Stubbs Allotments, Bhandari Close, Oxford, OX4 3DT

Free but booking essential via EventBrite here

Please join us for dyeing and food as our colourful allotment transitions from Summer bloom to its Autumn rest.

On Sunday 22nd October from 12 till 3pm we invite you to our allotment to have a go at shibori dyeing and eco bundle dyeing with the wonderful plants we’ve grown this year. We will provide tea, coffee, cake and a soup cooking on the fire. Feel free to bring a vegetable to chuck in the soup pot and / or food to share!

This is a long term research and development project from creative practitioners Patrick Mannion and Rosie McLean in collaboration with Fig Studio.   The project aims to think about art-making holistically, in nurturing relationship with the land, each other and ourselves.

The plot is located on the Bhandari Close allotment site. You can see the Lumigraph Tinctoria plot from the entrance gate – it’s on the right-hand side tucked between the hedge and the polytunnel. Parking is limited so please find other ways to get there if you are able.
