Sea Of face ‘Tynemouth Station’

An installation created for Tynemouth Station. Visitors to the station were asked to describe a person that wasn’t there with them, hair colour, facial features etc, to an artist who attempted to draw the person from their description, in a kind of Expressionistic photo fit style. These were sized up into large cardboard drawings, with some of the key words from the conversations incorporated into the images. The final images, about 150, were hung from the rafters of the station. I worked with illustrators Bethan Laker and Chris Folwell on this. The project was created for the Drawing! festival.
