'The Bear Pit', St James Barton roundabout, Bristol
Installation. 30 x 30 x 45 cm.
Highlighting the trust we place in one another, this project explores the psychogeographical nature of such ostensibly uninviting urban environments as this city underpass, colloquially known as The Bear Pit, where people in a state of hypervigilance cross paths with an acute sense of space.
An object synonymous with mistrust, security mirrors were placed in an underpass to appear in context to the surroundings, before an 'etched' word across the reflective surface becomes apparent, containing the opposite sentiment.
