AVIDD are really excited to announce that they have been commissioned by Vivacity to take part in ‘Boxed In’.
The installation is an exciting new opportunity for artists and designers to create a window display at Unit 59 in Queensgate. The window looks out over Cathedral Square, so is a prime position. The proposal is to have installations that are enclosed behind the glass; a space that no one can enter but everyone can see!
AVIDD have been asked to create one such window, and as you can imagine we are chuffed to bits at being given the chance to show our work in such a prestigious location in the heart of Peterborough.
Our piece is entitled Time for Change. It is made up of 3 illuminated dandelions highlighting the beauty of nature and the planet, bringing summer to the heart of the city. The aim is to shine a light (or 3) on the fragility of the environment and to highlight the fact that time is running out for us to change our ways and make a difference… as the dandelions seed heads are released on the wind, and into the world.
The AVIDD dandelions will be lighting up the square at night and we hope they will become a talking point, a local attraction and a message to us all.
The installation will be in place from Wednesday 13th June until Wednesday 27th June when we will be proud to make way for a Peterborough PRIDE window.
The entire installation, once removed, will be recycled and repurposed – nothing will go to waste.
