Dazzle Ships

During the First World War, the Admiralty in Britain tried a remarkable experiment with a form of camouflage that made ships more, not less, visible. Co-commissioned by Edinburgh Art Festival and 14-18 NOW, the Every Woman project remembers and celebrates these 'dazzle ships'. As part of the project, female poets wrote poems responding to a ship decorated by Turner Prize-nominated artist Ciara Phillips, which appear in a pamphlet called SIGNAL. Many of the poets who took part will appear.
