This is a poem I wrote for Accrington library, which I painted and photographed individually to be made into a video. With the technical and supportive help of artist Sophie Skellen, for our most recent joint exhibition, Drop’IN. Installed by Sophie, our curator Amy Lawrence and the libraries janitor.
It was projected at the entrance of the library for a week with the aim of changing the energy of the people who entered the library. Asking them questions and giving them instructions, hoping to raise awareness and disturb the conscious/unconscious. Or at the very least for people to simply look up and enjoy the charms of the entrance hall, webs, peeling paint and all.
