6 month residency with The Heart of Glass, developing ideas through working with young people in St Helens, focusing on personal histories and experiences, progressing to a series of imagined visions of the future. The project explores hopes and fears of the young people for the future of the world with the best and worst possible narratives presented through a series of artworks and research. Using a post-industrial backdrop, materials and colours were inspired by the industries of St Helens.
Quotes from young people collected throughout the project displayed on empty shop units throughout St Helens
