Artist Ciara Phillips creates 'dazzle ship' design

A Glasgow-based artist has created a massive screen-print design for a 72m (239ft) long ship as part of World War One centenary commemorations.

Turner Prize nominee Ciara Phillips is the fourth artist to be commissioned to make a dazzle ship design.

The work celebrates the untold histories of woman during the war.

It was inspired by the team of women who worked under British marine artist Norman Wilkinson, who invented the dazzle technique.

Mr Wilkinson designed the abstract dazzle ship patterns and disorientating shapes to prevent the enemy from determining a vessel's range, speed and direction of travel.

Ms Phillips's work is entitled Every Woman and was co-commissioned by centenary art commissions body 14-18 NOW and Edinburgh Art Festival.
