The Wolverhampton Wanderers - Enchanted City 2013

Oldest Place - Fireworks, originally uploaded by Ross Ashton.

At the beginning of the month we were busy in Wolverhampton creating our second version of "Enchanted City"  We were commissioned to produce two video installations; one for The University main entrance on Wulfrana street and the second for the side of Barclays Bank building on St Peters Square.
The work was commiosioned by Wolverhampton Council and produced by Robin Morley of Magnetic Events.

This was fantasy piece based on the idea of the university being a generator of ideas.  It was light hearted and fast moving and was fun to make.  We enjoyed creating the flying objects especially nellie the cow.

Karen Monid led out on this piece, recording anglo-saxon poetry on the theme of The Garden of Eden.  St Peters Square is the site of the original land which Lady Wulfrun donated to found a monastery.

The public reaction to the entire Enchanted Town project was overwhelmingly positive and we thank the people of Wolverhampton for being so welcoming.
Hopefully we'll be back soon.
