In 20th century art the expanded field changed the way we look at art, focusing on non- traditional methods and materials in the production of art work. These are conceptual manifestation and means of expression. ‘A City as Sculpture’ is such a manifestation – a conceptual art work inviting people to look at the city in a different way, to see through and beyond daily life and see the place like a painting, produced through the application of thick layers of history built up to produce the world we see before our eyes. “A City as Sculpture“ is an invitation to look through these layers and recognise that a city, a place where we all participate in the daily life, exist long before and beyond our lifetimes and the places that we walk through echo with the footsteps of generations before and those to come. “A City as Sculpture’ is a three part project – accessing a city and the surrounding area as an artwork in its own right, displaying and presenting a multiplicity of physical sculptures in and around the city and surrounding areas, and working with the public to help shape the future of the city through artwork production.
