| The Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich is the venue for the shooting, Paralympic shooting and archery events of the 2012 Games. With four colours arts partnership I created a series of art installations around Woolwich that responded to the Games coming to the area. Each intervention was hosted by the local community.
International colour washes
A playful transformation of public and domestic spaces using the London 2012 colours.
The shed of stray shots
Two interactive sheds situated at Welcare, a local gardening charity. Inside the first: the sound of arrows flying through the air before hitting their target. In the second: holes drilled in the same configuration as those found in a used target, cast shafts of light within.
|| Archers paradox
A short film shot at the Long Mynd Archery Club in Shropshire. Using a high speed camera we filmed Paralympic GB archers shoot a single arrow at 3000 frames per second. The arrow moving slowly away is a metaphor for the journeys we embark on and the farewells we make. The film was projected inside a local resident's garage, which backs onto Woolwich Common.
The Olympic Delivery Authority commissioned four colours as part of their Arts and Cultural Strategy. Copies of the publication ‘four colours’ with a foreword by Stella Duffy can be obtained by contacting: firstname.lastname@example.org
