NOISELAB installation complete!

Here are a few images of a piece i created for arts charity Noise Festival, at the manchester pop-up shop, NOISELAB. The window installation was made from a series of large scale drawings, which were then cut out into seperate components, suspended and pieced together.
I havnt thought of a name for the piece yet, but i am considering 'Big Bertha' as a homage to the 80's childrens animation.

Check out the Noiselab website for more information about the organisation
