Buildings.Volcano's. Fear. Terror.
We made a model city and ran workshops, to make a fim with the public.
Thanks for all the willing greenscreener's who helped make it possible. More green screen footage still to be added
The film can be seen here
The following people contributed to the making of 'There city'...
A found and unopened letter was the inspiration for a series of drawings, writings and workshops in schools.
The resulting body of work was made into a show at Solihull Arts Complex. James Bourne organised the show which featured illustrations by Themlot members and renowned illustrators.
Illustrators were asked to respond to artwork and stories written by children, based on what they imagined might be inside the unopened envelope. The artwork was then displayed alongside the childrens inspirational material.

Live Drawing at the DMA awards ceremony
Members of Themlot were given envelopes containing the winners of each catagory throughout the night and had to make illustrations based on the victorious advertising campaign within half an hour.
The drawing was done in front of guests and transmitted onto big screens via live videao feed. As you can see it was quite frantic.
"Talking Birds invited artists to exhibit a project that would be showcased in a small warehouse space inside Gosford Industrial Estate on Far Gosford Street.
I responded to the brief by investigating what the people of Coventry thought about the visual look of their city. Using the online Cov Jam project I found all the information I required for my research. I was particularly inspired by the positive comments made.
I didn't want to work with any negative information as I wanted the final piece of work to be uplifting and inspiring for the visitors who saw it. Once I had gathered my information I began considering how I would create something visual to accompany the comments made on Cov Jam. After spending some time in the space I decided that I wanted to work in 3d. After sketching out some of the buildings mentioned in the Cov Jam comments I decided to enlarge my drawings and begin making a paper city. The paper city sat alongside the Cov Jam comments on August 30th 2010 between 4 - 7pm."
An interactive game and sculptures.
As part of the Barbicans arty Xmas bazaar, Themlot members made a game with references to edwardian circus acts. Particaipants could win handmade and limited edition prizes by throwing eyeballs into the paper mache sculptures.
