Where Do We Go From Here ?
1 Dec 2017 – 7 Jan 2018
Hull Old Town
Where Do We Go From Here? is a groundbreaking kinetic artwork created by the award-winning Jason Bruges Studio that uses light, robotics and sound to create a unique immersive experience in the streets of Hull’s historic old town, one that also asks questions of the viewer.
The scale of Jason Bruges Studio’s artwork set against the medieval layout of Hull’s streets creates a visually stunning piece of art unlike anything ever seen in a public space before. It is designed to build on Hull’s reputation as a place where the surprising happens and globally significant art is commissioned and displayed.
With robotics at its heart, Where Do We Go From Here? also speaks to the ambitions of the city as technology and innovation supersede old industries to meet the demands of the 21st century.
Jason Bruges Studio’s thrilling mix of art and technology embodies key themes for Hull as it reflects on an extraordinary year of change, not just for the city, but globally. At a time of political uncertainty at home and abroad, it also asks important questions: What kind of place do we want to live in? What role should culture play? Where do we go from here?
The title of the commission, Where Do We Go From Here?, is a deliberate provocation designed to get individuals reflecting upon their city’s future. It invites everyone to take part in a timely conversation about art, culture and society.
