This artwork distorts the old view and extends pictorial margins into a new visual perception of Britain's second largest transforming city.
Directly onto the walls in STRYX, Digbeth, a layer of charcoal tracing was drawn. On top of the drawing was a distortion of a projected video image.
The cityscape of familiar buildings had video effects that made the iconic architecture bulge and wave. It was as if the concrete and grey of the old was morphing into new shapes to keep up with the shiny modern forms recently built in Birmingham.
Ideally as a new city reforms, so our identity and right to the city emerges. According to Patrick Keiller " The sight of a familiar space in film can momentarily banish the sense of marginality that haunts even the most central urban locations".
