Pearman was selected as the artist and consultant for a Capital Build Programme for Burnham on Crouch Primary School. His input involved integrating artwork into the redesign of the school, including an architectural glass application to the new assembly hall main glazing. Pearman developed a series of artworks that investigates our relationship toward the built environment.

For the glazing project Tom explored themes relating to linear perspective and vanishing points. The imagery is framed within the stages of a sliding puzzle providing a two-fold mind visual conundrum.

Tom undertook a series of creative sessions with the school’s pupils exploring how the above themes could be incorporated into the glass artwork.
