Be co-operative

Many hands make artwork


Mill Co. with The Co-operative


As part of the 3rd annual Mill Co. exhibition, we were asked to respond to the theme of Co-operation. We decided to devise a piece that would only come into being with the collaboration and co-operation of the exhibition attendees.

Each visitor was given a pack, which included instructions and an identically die-cut card to be slotted into the evolving work. Asked to explore memories of urban co-operation, and documenting the experience in words or images on the cards supplied, they then slotted their card onto the structure anywhere they chose. Their work contributed to a cityscape whose foundations and building blocks were acts of collective generosity.
