The work evolved from interviews with traders in the Bullring markets in Birmingham, following the question “have you ever seen a shooting star?”. The resulting audio work interweaves their diverse responses and includes spiritual and philosophical questions, UFO sightings, accapella songs and recalling specific moments.
The work was commissioned by Claire Doherty at Ikon Gallery in response to one of Cornelia Parkers meteorite works launched from the iconic tower within the Bullring markets in Birmingham just prior to a major redevelopment of the area.
It was exhibited in the clock tower at Ikon Gallery as part of Birmingham 2001. It has been broadcast as an audio work on Resonance FM.
