As part of the Random String microFestival on Thursday 9th June I installed Last Day at Unit 22 at the City Arcade in Coventry.
Last Day is a piece that highlights the fragility of financial markets and the unpredictable nature of consumer habits, market forces and trends. The effects of these have been far reaching, seeing once thriving retail parks home to small businesses and former retail giants rendered as ghost towns of empty units. The choice of imagery shows that nothng is too big to fail.
Last Day was commissioned by Ludic Rooms for the Random String microFestival. It is situated in a derelict shopping unit the City Arcade in Coventry where it will remain until the space becomes occupied again. Many thanks to Dom Breadmore and Anne Forgan for accepting my proposal and Malachi Cummings-Hall for his assistance installing.
