Lego-opolis

A project created in Whitehaven in the UK.   I was set up in a shop in the town center for three weeks. We invited passers-bye and community groups to come into the space and help recreate the buildings of Whitehaven in Lego.  As part of the project, as well as the models we created stop motion videos around the town.  We encouraged local people to donate lego and also got some sponsorship of blocks. I worked with artists from the Red Nile art organisation on the structures and the local arts officers of the time. We also created figures to populate the models which included photo heads of residents. We worked with a few hundred people on the models over the weeks.
