18-06-2018 - GREAT TO GET GREAT YARMOUTH EXPO PROJECT INSTALLED

 

I was commissioned by originalprojects; to design a presentation of a train enthusiast’s photographic collection as part of Great Yarmouth Expo, a project that collects and celebrates cultural artefacts, personalities and customs from the people of Great Yarmouth.

The display shows a small selection of photographs of trains taken by Mark Potton at Great Yarmouth Station taken over a 50 year period.

I took Mark’s photographs and reflected and repeated them to present a contemporary interpretation that draws attention to the common vanishing point. The sense of movement also suggests a looking back to the past to find a way forward. The ring-binder motif and handwritten notes acknowledge the local source of the collection.

The large wall-mounted artwork is located on a prominent wall space within the development and has used particular colours and font with an Art-Deco style, to reflect the important period when there was significant infrastructure growth in Croydon. These signs and artworks are created using vitreous enamel on steel – this is the same material and technique that is still used today for signage utilised by the rail transport network in London, both overground and underground.

Tom has referenced folding train map pamphlets for the artwork which was also employed for a flyer distributed to local residents intorducing them to the project.

06-03-2015 - REQUESTED TO SUBMIT GLAZING AND CLADDING PROPOSAL FOR BEDFORDSHIRE NEW COMMUNITY BUILDING – PROJECT AWARDED

F:General Job Files - New Projects704 - Stotfold Community Ce

Design concept:
A public art design, which reflects on the history of Stotfold and celebrates the community of contemporary Stotfold. Each elevation will be designed to create a bold visual impact from a distance, but on viewing at close proximity will reveal detail and small-scale interest.

This approach aims to provide lasting interest for visitors to the building whereby the design creates lasting interest over several viewings.
Each panel will depict a heritage aspect of Stotfold; steam power, the water mill agriculture and nature. But on closer viewing, aspects of the designs will reveal themselves to be made from text. For the mill and steam designs, text would be used to form the lines of the imagery and examples showing this process have been included.
The text will create a multilayered richness both visually and thought provoking. In this way contemporary Stotfold will be woven into the design.

Reporting to a designated Project Panel (named below), an experienced artist is sought to design a site-specific, innovative, timeless and high quality artwork (or series of artworks) for integration into the external public realm / landscaped areas of the scheme.

It is anticipated that the work produced in response to this brief will be largely focussed on the retaining wall at block B but will extend to the retaining walls in the vicinity of blocks A and C, as well as providing aesthetic treatment of the hotel’s associated landscaped areas and pathways.

The public art at the site is expected to serve as an aesthetic narrative for a pedestrian audience – as shown in the following images – and will be clearly visible from nearby highways.
