About : Pask Parallels charts over a period of ten years, a series of Richard Brown’s art and research experiments which move between the analogue and the digital, resulting in the discovery of the work of Gordon Pask and culminating in the Pask inspired exhibition Maverick Machines. The title reflects a series of research and experiments that bear striking similarities to the electrochemical work of Pask yet were created without any knowledge of Gordon Pask or his work.
