The walls have started to go up. It’s beginning to take shape. Now the area is enclosed it’s really made a difference to how the space feels - it’s changed from being just a stack of pallets to a proper structure.
After Day Two I’ve used 100 pallets.
Coming soon: West Bromwich Connections. A short research project looking at reuniting the town centre with Dartmouth Park.
The project is run by Multistory and involves six artists. We will be looking at ways of improving the connection between the two locations through public works, waymarkers, signage and other interventions.
Work for the Public Inquiry is taking shape. After having spent a day collecting and assessing information from people I discovered that although people didn’t initially like The Public many have now come to love it. ‘I hated it at first but now it’s growing on me’ was one of the responses that stuck out. In response to this I decided to make something grow on The Public - a kind of happy fungus.
After a bit of trial and error I have developed a series of ‘spores’ made from heavyweight paper left over from Will Alsop’s piece for the exhibition. These are being clustered underneath the walkway that snakes through The Public.
Here is the progress so far.
