Liverpool Art Prize 2008 – Jayne Lawless

The Workers (click image to resize) Tunnel (click image to resize)

My most recent work Tunnel was a temporary installation for the public to walk through created in response to my residency at The New Wolsey Theatre. Its purpose was to stimulate the imagination and to provoke a sense of anticipation as you prepare to see a live performance. I employed a number of mechanisms to create a heightened multi-sensory experience including light and sound.
