So to start off we have acquired a 1986 Swift Corniche touring caravan, which over the winter will become a fully functioning mobile space for experiments, observations and engagements.
Currently the caravan is fully furnished; with a lot of stuff that doesn't work. Fridge, Heater, Shower, Toilet. Therefore all of this is going to get stripped out.
In place of the usual caravan interior we will install all the things we will need to carryout the project on the move. A library of reference books, observation windows for using binoculars, moveable seating to create a more flexible space, generator power, and wifi connectivity.
Our hope is to be able to tour to various sites around stoke-on-trent and gather information about, habitats, users of particular spaces, opinions and ideas. At the same time we will also be making artistic responses to the sites we select.
