University of Brighton students worked with participants from the charity which supports people with learning disabilities, autism and/or mental health issues on the Working Together project, a response to the recent Brighton Centre for Contemporary Arts Lloyd Corporation exhibition.
For the project the group worked together over 5 weeks earlier this year to share ideas and make artwork inspired by the exhibition. The boxes were introduced in the 2nd session as a starting point because they can contain, store and transport objects and materials in a similar way to the shipping containers in the gallery (albeit on a much smaller scale). As the project progressed the boxes surface, form, contents, materiality and function have shifted and changed.
