Hope & Fear

Hope and Fear is an immense jigsaw which seamlessly stitches geographically disparate British locations. 150 participants were sent a satellite image of their neighbourhood and asked to inscribe their hopes and fears for the future into the image. These individual postcodes were carefully moulded together to form a single nation. The jigsaw started a discussion about how we might collectively shape our environment. Not just commenting on other people’s plans, but being there at the start of the journey. Participants joined together to fill the floor with large printed panels, searching for matching drawings, streets and fields. Only through observation and negotiation did the artwork become whole. A process reflecting the challenges which face any community, now and forever…….
