Here Now and Looking Back, St.Helens 1914 - 1918
2nd - 28th July.
Moss Bank Library

Come and interact with a unique St.Helens originated artwork that has been built by bringing together a mix of computer hardware, games technology and WebGL.

Artist Benedict Phillips was commissioned as a Cultural Hubs artist in residence to make a digital artwork in response to WW1. Benedict travelled between 7 libraries situated in the North of St.Helens. During these library visits they met with many local people who own personal artefacts, photographs and objects detailing their families’ involvement in the Great War.

Through recorded discussions and the documentation of local family’s collections, Benedict developed this interactive artwork alongside a commemorative book and a website.
