maquettes, memories & musings

We started by thinking about site specific, public art.  We then made maquettes from a variety of available material.  In discussion, we considered; scale, if anything could be tweaked, where they would be located and viewers' responses to them.

Gosh, this opened a can of worms!  I think we all had a vent about something but as Monica reminded us, public art does sometimes provoke response and lively debate.

Lovely, colourful work below.  Well done everyone!
