Dave from Glad got in touch to tell us about their latest project for Factory Nights – a series of working sessions in which visual artists, photographers, writers, poets, musicians and film-makers come together in a previously unrealised space to collaborate and create work that responds to the environment.
The publication, designed by Glad, serves as a record of projects realised between 2011-2012 and a promotional tool for future events.
Factory Nights is about discovery and exploration; discovering fascinating unused spaces and exploring the possibilities of their use. To reflect this core idea, silver scratch-card latex has been used throughout the piece, allowing curious recipients to scratch below the surface and discover something; hidden text, unexpected detail or project information. The document provides an experience above and beyond simply reading; recipients essentially become participants in the Factory Nights ethos of discovery by interacting with the document to uncover and discover.
