For the last few weeks we’ve had the pleasure of working with students from Heart of Worcestershire College to produce a series of pixel art animations inspired by the Paolozzi mosaic murals in Kingfisher Shopping Centre in Redditch town centre. Supported by the Cultural Compact for North East Worcestershire, this project came about as part of the celebrations for the 40th anniversary of the iconic murals’ installation. Students were invited to create contemporary responses to the complex and colourful collages, introducing movement and revealing new layers of meaning for the artworks for audiences in 2023. There are now 4 panels that come to life when viewed through the free Artivive app which you can experience yourself over the coming months as the celebrations continue.
Here’s an article from the Redditch Standard with some more info on the project. https://redditchstandard.co.uk/news/heart-of-worcestershire-college-students-bring-eduardo-paolozzi-mosaics-to-life-through-animation/
