Timeline exhibition: LINK gallery: Manchester

My contribution: 'I heard a man die'
I particularly like the mirror installed by my friend to suggest the present in 2011 and how you can never really capture the now. The future: I attached a acetate copy of an image of victims of war to suggest that man will be the reason for his slow demise.

In the Art school we were given the opportunity to be involved in an exhibition,which involved us simply choosing a year between approximately 1970-onwards as far into the future as we desired. I wanted to create a poster due to my current project but as i was aware that an image was preferred i decided to use a recent event that effected me and use black,bold, illustrated text against a white background to attract the viewers. The event was based on an incident that happened outside my flat in which a man was knocked over and killed. It effected me because i heard the impact and the crying screams of his family and it really made me think about how people react to other people grief. I kept the work simplistic in design and to the point. I enjoyed being part of such open an interestingly individual yet fluent timeline.
