For a while we have been teasing twitter followers with messages about “Project X”. We posted various photographic snippets to increase the mystery and excitement…
Project X is in fact our very own exhibition stand. It has been designed to replicate part of a prison cell. The frame was produced by HMP Shotts and the “art” was delivered by Willie Sinclair and his team of artists who can be found at the Maryhill Community Hub.
For surreal conversations we can highly recommend walking into HMP Shotts to tell them you are there to pick up a cell!
The first outing was at last weeks Youth Justice conference in Dundee organised by our friends at the Centre for Youth and Community Justice. We turned our stand into a piece of interactive installation art by allowing participants to write their own stuff on the wall space. This went down very well with those who entered into the spirit of the venture and we will be showcasing the comments in one of our next newsletters.
