The artwork reflects the local east London community enjoying a typical Sunday afternoon. The works were initially made as small-scale paper collages that were subsequently rendered in laser-cut aluminium.
'All my thinking around this project has been about the journeys we make and how we make them our own – through the people we see on a daily basis, or private maps of significant places we carry in our heads. Part of the challenge has been to develop small intimate collages into large scale works and to retain a sense of the personal in a public space.' – Chantal Joffe
