A graphic hoardings panel expressing flight paths taken by any airborne objects above the site.
Using inspiration from migrating birds, autumn seed dispersal, manmade flying objects, weather, spiritual beliefs and a class of Primary school children’s own experience of flight and travel. The hoardings operate as part fact, part fiction mapping the un-owned space of the sky above an inaccessible site, trying to transcend the barriers the hoardings themselves and the future building (as private/commercial property) may represent to the children.
Designed to work from up close by passers-by, schoolchildren and parents, as well as viewed at a distance by pupils from their classrooms, the work also operates across space ,being readable from one end to another. It is both bold and detailed incorporating drawings, found images and short explanatory text titles.
