We are so excited to be working with the Edinburgh Art Festival and the Dazzle Ship project to complete Maths, Technologies and Art design challenges.
Dazzle Ship designs were painted on to World War I battleships to ‘dazzle’ the on-coming enemy. It is thought that the optical illusion designs, confused the enemy ships and made them unsure of which direction they were travelling in. They were also fascinating to look at, with interesting colours and patterns.
The ‘Dazzle Ship’ Leith was situated down by Ocean Terminal until it was recently decomissioned. A shame, but you can research some of the images on-line.
We have created some amazing ‘dazzled’ art work and would like to you to take a look…
