'Everyday Backdrop' for Made in Roath 2013

As part of Made in Roath 2013, Artes Mundi collaborated with artist Ben Owen and invited passers-by in St David’s Shopping Centre, Cardiff, to consider travel, migration, borders, and social experiences through the objects they carry in their pockets or bags, whether that be sentimental trinkets, a pair of glasses or a bunch of keys.

Participants were asked to place their objects on the surface of an OHP for large scale projection onto a roll of backdrop paper and could then use an array of colourful transparent and semi-transparent materials to mark and collage these shadowed outlines onto the surface. The two day activity resulted in an 11 metre abstract drawing of miscellaneous, travelling objects.
