Artist Steven Hatton will be at the Boston Market on Wednesday 22nd from 10am to 4pm collecting stories from passersby.
As part of the more than a-part project; a portrait of Boston in, and emerging from, lockdown during the Coronavirus Pandemic. Participants are invited to take part in a phone conversation to share their stories and to think about the question: what or who are we thankful for?
At the Market Place, Steven is putting the question to those in the town centre. Feel free to pop by so you can share your answer. This is an opportunity to shine a light on what has helped you through this difficult time and influence public artwork.
Steve will record your conversation and you’ll have an opportunity to see the cyanotype process that is being used for the project.
It is a chance to celebrate acts of kindness, special relationships and treasured spaces. Participants may simply contribute to the work through conversation which then inspires the artwork but they are also welcome to create elements which will be worked into the artwork.
The resulting artworks will form a ‘tapestry’ of individual experiences using cyanotypes, an early Victorian photographic process (the header image of this webpage is an example of the process). This will form a lasting testament to Boston’s ‘lockdown’ experience and the people and places who helped residents through this time.
Examples of cyanotypes will be decorating the Transported gazebo.
If you are unable make it in person, email Steve on firstname.lastname@example.org.
