Abstract or Description:

Citizen Ship, artwork, 2017 Milton Keynes City Club with Milton Keynes Gallery. A mobile sculpture sited in five locations in Milton Keynes, including; Milton Keynes Gallery, Milton Keynes Art Centre, Art in the Park, Middleton Hall, Shopping centre, Feast of Fire Milton Keynes International Festival. Citizen Ship is a portable pavilion designed as a public meeting place and with a resemblance to Milton Keynes bus shelters. The artwork is part-public sculpture, part-kiosk and part-publishing laboratory. Citizen Ship extends the concept of participation in art by engaging new groups in the production of collective artworks that are displayed in and on the structure. Through conversations visitors and passer-bys developed new slogans and published them by making badges, vinyl lettering, ribbons and teletext messaging. The participatory art methods applied are directed at opinion formation in order to understand how communities create and perform collective values. Citizen Ship, was funded by Arts Council England and Milton Keynes Art Gallery.
