"I walk the line"

February 28, 2010 | By |

Artist Thomas Shephard gives a performance exploring public / private space in the city centre. ‘Walking Tour of Liverpool One’ navigates the public circumference of the privately owned Liverpool One shopping development. I was interested to document Thomas’ take on this issue, having already done some work in relation to Liverpool One, both in the The Model City and Make Your Own Liverpool projects. I will also be working one a project later this year researching the history of the site prior to it’s re-development.

“Walking Tour of Liverpool One’ was performed as part of the Bluecoats ‘View From the Grassy Knoll’ event on 27th Feb 2010. An unedited video of the full 20 minute walk can be seen here.

I’m collecting peoples’ memories of going to the cinema. I’m interested in the different experiences we have depending on when we first or last went, and the role it plays in our lives.

Please spend 60 seconds sharing a memory of a cinema experience you had:

Where Do You Go?

July 10, 2009 | By | No Comments

As part of the Make Your Own Liverpool project for NML back in May, me and John asked young people to begin adding places to the model of Liverpool. What emerged was a cityscape abundant in McDonalds restaurants and Primarks, but no Liver Building.

If a tree falls in the woods…

April 24, 2009 | By | No Comments

“If a tree falls in the woods, and no-one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?”. Yes, of course it does, now don’t be so silly. However, if an artwork takes place in Liverpool, and no-one is around to film it, did it ever happen. The answer in this case is clearly not. If events in our time are not flicker’d twitter’d and facebook’d (or “f’ook’d” as I like to call it) then they fundamentally do not exist. Not in our world anyway (see my previous post on the role of the videographer in art events today).

Thank goodness  people have camera-phones, to prove the work took place. I also took the steps to have someone document it on video (to follow) just incase everyone who encountered it only experienced it. Actually, I’m really grateful my mate Tim took these snaps, as I was holed up in the CCTV centre of Clayton Square doing my knob twiddling, so these are the only pictures I’ve seen of it!For those who like there art vicariously, eat my heart out:

Channel 4 covered the production of Da Boyz with a small feature that gives a bit of insight into the initiative behind the play.

The 4th Wall

February 22, 2009 | By | 5 Comments

I have just finished working on ‘Da Boyz’, a production addressing issues around gang culture and community voice. It is written by former Brookside and Emmerdale scribe Carol Cullington, and is directed by Ruth Ben-Tovim whom I worked with on the Be My Guest project. A key creative decision was taken early on to stage the play in a way that the audience would be incorporated into the set, and that parts of the set would be used for video projections relaying key plot point (texts from characters) and also giving a sense of place.

The set was skillfully designed by Leeds-based Emma Williams, and made in such a way that it could be rigged with lights. The pictures below show how different locations were back-projected onto tracing paper (a cheap alternative to BP screen), and give an idea of how close the audience were to the action. The play tours for the next week around various commubity centres in Liverpool including Kensington, Garston and Croxteth.
