Get A Word In

Commissioner: Cambridge Regional College
Location: Cambridge Regional College, Cambridge UK
Status: Completed 2009
Photography: Miriam Sleeman

A text-based permanent public artwork highlighting the student entrance to their college.

The artwork evolved through working with the students to create an interactive educational communication ‘tool’ where they can voice their opinions, messages, stories, poetry and emotions.

Words, Phrases and Icons can be uploaded to scroll across a custom built double sided CCFL lighting display screen, seen from the internal hall and from the College’s square.

The installation benefits from licensed use of predictive text software by Nuance as well as Oxford University Press digital dictionary of phrases.

This project was designed, project managed and delivered whilst at Jason Bruges Studio.
