The project was devised and lead by Steve Geliot; a temporary installation lasting one week following three months of outreach work with the residents of Compton Road, and several other community groups within the visual catchment. I was one of six artists commissioned to work with Steve to create this installation which was visible from across the city.
Three hundred square meters of back-projection screens were mounted above the roofs of twelve houses, with six synchronised high power projectors operated from the opposite side of the street.
A £60,000 budget was raised from The Urban Cultural Fund/Brighton and Hove Arts Commission, Arts Council England, Fatboyslim, Austin Gray, Cobra Beer and Arts and Business.
The other artists that worked on the project were Dan Mellor, Mim King, Ros Barber, Brian McClave & Gavin Peacock. Community outreach coordinator Dawn Daniel, rigging David Smith.
