I am pleased to share this short film of ‘the making of’ my installation at Acklam Village – this film was produced by the wonderful team at DigitalWorks; the film explores the context behind the show and its conception. The ‘Orphans’ project uses and presents historical photos of local people installed at epic scale on the walls of the Westway Flyover.
