The news
‘Over the past few years the demographic landscape of Barking has dramatically changed. Although around (www.bdpost.co.uk) 80% of residents are classed as white, 50% of school pupils are from ethnic minorities.   Barking’s new hospital is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. ‘The News’ documents the reading material of local people while they waited in GP surgeries, eye clinics, hospital waiting rooms, sexual health clinics and mental health units. The lightbox is located in the main waiting room where people await news.

Commissioned by Studio3Arts, funded by NHS Barking and Dagenham.
