The Compton Skyline Project

600 square meters of back projection screen were mounted above 12 terraced houses on Compton Road, on a Brighton Hilltop in the summer of 2006. This collaborative project lead by Steve Geliot was funded by The Urban Cultural fund through Brighton and Hove Arts Commission, Arts Council England through Grants for the Arts and also supported by Fatboyslim and Austen Grey. The project featured the work of six artists - Steve Geliot, Dan Mellor, Miriam King, Ros Barber, Brian McClave and Ellie Williams - working with the residents of Compton Road and surrounding community. Visible from two miles away, the launch drew huge crowds, and the project received wide critical acclaim, as well as forging friendships on Compton Road.
