This week I'm, turning over the weblog to the Hythe Station public art project The 9.03,
At the end of last summer, as regular readers will know I was commissioned, along with artist Dale Devereux Barker and designer Graham Clark to fill about 90 metres of hoardings with poems, text artworks and general loveliness for a newly revamped Hythe rail station in Colchester. The area is one which is rich in history and industrial heritage. After six months work and preparation, we finally launched it. The last bits are still going up, even as I write. I'm immensely proud of it and will be posting up some of the bits of text and various other goodies this week. If you're anywhere near, do go and have a look at it. If you're living abroad and thinking of coming over here this year, ditto.
