Community building lit up with 130 works from local artists

The work of nearly 100 local artists of all ages and abilities became part of one large artwork projected onto the wall of a Cambridge public building.

Participants aged from 5 to 80 something took part in a series of free workshops led by local artist Adam Bridgland, at which they created pieces of art that were then digitally recorded to form part of the larger work. The workshops were on the theme ‘Knowledge is….’ and were supported by Cambridge Assessment, the University’s international exams board, as part of the public art engagement for its new Triangle headquarters. A total of 130 works were projected onto one of the walls of The Signal Box Signal Box community centre on Glenalmond Avenue, which is close to the Triangle site and where many of the workshops took place.

With Adam’s help participants, who ranged from first time artists to professionals, created work using a range of techniques, including mono printing, screen printing, collage, letterpress and cyanotype photography.

The artwork reflects the main art commission for Triangle, In Other Words, created by artist duo Vong Phaophanit and Claire Oboussier. This features layers of script in different languages printed onto glass.

Adam Bridgland lives and works as an artist in Cambridgeshire and is a graduate of the Royal College of Art in London. The British Museum, the V&A, UBS, Boeing Asia the collectors of Adam’s work. More details can be seen at http://www.adambridgland.co.uk/
