Shop Art Commission 2010-2011
In 2010 I was commissioned to produce a site specific installation in Gateshead Town Centre. The brief was to produce a vibrant contemporary art installation that would engage the public while also inject some life and energy into the town centre.
This was a great opportunity to show case my microscopy photography on a much larger scale. The sites that I selected were three Adshel light boxes (usually used for advertising purposes) and 11 meter long stretches of window glazing in the Gateshead Interchange. Below are a series of images from the installation which was installed for about 11 months.
