The Changing Face
696mm x 206mm triple-fold, with spot UV varnish. A variant included a DVD of the installation.
This animated film and large-scale outdoor projected installation was
sited at the juncture of Berwick’s points of transit, the crossing
of its three famous bridges with the River Tweed, the geographical division
between England and Scotland. It consisted of a dramatic series of morphing
portraits, projected onto a 50ft screen suspended under the central
arch of the Royal Tweed Bridge, creating a double mirror image through
its reflection in the river below. Seen from the Old Bridge and Quayside,
it offered a spectacular and socially dynamic welcome for the visitor,
not one that is solely based on history, but complimented by a focus
on the present and future potential of the region.
First screened onto the Royal Tweed Bridge from the 21st – 24th September 2007 as part of the Berwick Film and Media Arts Festival and then subsequently shown in other parts of the Town including the façade of the disused Playhouse Cinema in Sandgate. Exhibited as part of the Dott 07 Festival (Designs of the time 07) between 16th – 28th October, at Baltic Square, Gateshead.
