Jacob Horwood has screenprinted images onto plexiglass to create active moirés that shift and change. A moiré pattern is created when two identical and usually transparent patterns are overlaid yet slightly displaced, producing an optical effect. A wobbly linear pattern was printed using high gloss ink in different colours, and separated into layers. The application of the print into multiple layers on plexiglass physically separates the images and causes interactivity between them. The small distances between each piece causes real motion in the work that is effected when the viewer moves around the work.
