I was chosen by Wild Vision Collective to display my work in an Art Trail in Stockton on Tees. Each of the 12 artists were given an empty shop window at Wellington Square Shops. The art trail was visible during the hours of darkness and visitors could follow the trail as part of their daily exercise during Lockdown 3. I submitted work I had created for my MA project A walk along Cod Beck which was textile sculpture that lights up at night. The artwork is called Interaction. It is inspired by the interactions between people and place. Spaces often become places once people settle there and create their own stories and memories. These places were often located at crossing points of rivers. The lights symbolise the car headlights passing over these bridges, the blue sphere sharing the idea that the river is central to people's lives and the orange forms represent the shapes of walks I took over and around a bridge in Sowerby.
