Wood Chips and Silver Saw Dust
The dust and wood chips were flying this week as we frantically jig-sawed 8ft sheets of Plywood into silhouettes of the Aberdeen skyline. Skilfully aided by exhibition designer Andy MacGregor (and our volunteers Jana and Fraser) we then pasted images, taken by the project participants, to represent the city’s streets.
The exhibition Silver City Soul, which opens tomorrow, is a ‘work in progress’, a video-portrait of Aberdeen. The centrepiece is a large projection of director Adam Proctor’s specially commissioned video featuring the people and places that make up the city.
This exhibition will develop over the next six months and will be shown again in Aberdeen Art Gallery in February next year. So if you live in the Granite City, look out for special workshops and events and keep sending us portraits of Aberdeen through the website www.silvercitysoul.me
