Spectate / Translate
Earlier in the year I accidentally stumbled on an idea for an intervention art piece. My inspiration for this was people and their many hidden lives and conversations. I have lost count of the amount of times that I have caught the tail-end of a strangers conversation, wondered what the hell they must have been talking about, imagined where their lives take them... It has become like a sort of mini addiction for me, true you don't get the highs or the chattery teeth but there is great fun to be had in stealing snippets from strangers lives. I wanted to share the love of this wondrous past-time and get people involved and really just see if people shared my enthusiasm for such a sport. So, a number of illustrated tags were given out as means of documentation.
