Huge congratulations to the team for all their great efforts in the construction of the ticket booth!
2 days of design and 6 days of building to create something that will become the centrepiece of the pop-up outdoor cinema in Brierfield!
It was so much fun making this, from the site visit to conception and implementation. Through the tens of problems we tackled every day and multiple espresso shots along the way.
More images to follow. Also keep an eye for the video coming up tomorrow.

Yesterday we were joined by our collaborator In-Situ and a group of brilliant Art and Media students from the College of Art in Pendle.
We started off with a design session, continuing from the previous day. The Art and Media students were then involved in commenting on the designs and highlighting key elements that could fit in well with the community in Brierfield. They then proposed a colour scheme derived from the natural shades of colour falling on the Brierfield Hill, along with a logo for the Brierfield Cinema.
Thank you for coming all the way to Manchester to join us! It was great to have you.
On Monday we expect the delivery of the cardboard tubes. Once they arrive we can start making the ticket booth! Excitiiiiiing! See you all on Monday!
Posted 21 Apr 2018 15:31
