A video of the final installation

This is a short video of the work in situ at the Bioscience Centre at the Centre for Life in Newcastle.  The final exhibition space is particular poignant for this work due to the nature of the work carried out at the centre.  Research into issues of infertility as well as treatments are carried out in this building (among lots of other things, of course).  As this project is about the family line, it seemed particularly apt to show the piece in this venue.  The little worker bees in this place are aiming to help keep family lines going, going, going.  Sometimes there is success and sometimes there isn’t.  It’s amazing to think how fragile our family lines are. How they can charge through the past, push through amazing odds and yet, for some of us, we become the end of the line.

This is where my tour ended.

Ok. So. As you can see these are videos of Dudley

My videos are starting to make me cringe.  They all begin with me saying “Okay, so, as you can see…” which is grating.  I think we know that perhaps I am not one for public speaking.

The first video is of part of the artwork hanging in the Dudley Archives for their Family History Day.  My assistant and I had to leave out a sheet and some pillowcases, but hopefully there was enough work there to tell enough of the story.  The second video as of the family’s home, where they lived in 1868.

These links will take you across time and space, or possibly across to YouTube:

This is the one in the Archives.

And this is the one on Wolverhampton Street.
