Participatory public art: Walk Space

Fusion Arts in partnership with the Healthy Walking Initiative commissioned me to develop public art for a new healthy walking route in east Oxford. A series of quotes taken from conversations with local people (most over 50) about their experiences of walking in the city and memories of particular places were set into walls along the route.

 I made some of the embossed bricks by hand at the Baggeridge Brickworks in Dudley. Other texts were hand-carved on site by stone carver Simon Keeley, aiming to generate further public interest in the artwork.
