In retrospect, the morning after…
The exhibit is now open to the public at the following times:
wed – sat, 1-5pm until the 5th of July.
Don’t be afraid to enter the space, you might need to bang on the window.
When you enter feel free to peruse the material on the walls but, most importantly, sit down on one of the benches facing the window and just watch and listen.

My thoughts upon the first responses to the work:
it was interesting to see what peoples movements and actions were within the space. The evening started with most people reading the provided material and not viewing ‘the screen’. However, people soon started to sit and listen – often for great deals of time. The problem now being that others felt they weren’t allowed to speak or move in front of the view. The work had gone from white wall gallery, to theatre – with all the social trappings. Eventually, we reached an equilibrium and room relaxed. good news – and an interesting study for me.
