For my sculpture seminar I wanted to change this space…
Into a bright happy area that was a colourful and exciting party of the city/community. I wanted the new area to contrast highly with the old area making it a shock to passers by.
I had chosen to paint one wall using poster paints. This meant that the area would become temporarily transformed as the paint would was off in the rain.
As I was working lots of people walked past and expressed their interest and excitement! I heard ‘why don’t you do all of it?’ And lots of ‘well done’s’.
The paints all dripped and ran together which created a really beautiful effect!
And we were even lucky enough to see some swans.
Lastly I began to pin up some colourful wall hangings. This made the dirty, muddy bridge transform into a home.
With the addition of a few rugs, blankets and pillows our little den was finished! A few strangers even came and sat in it with us! I feel like I’ve really accomplished what I wanted and my only regret is that we couldn’t leave it all there! I think that this is definitely something I would like to do again.
