Art, meet the future.

People We Love

Beautiful, moving and timely, People We Love explores the invisible transaction between a person, a piece of art and that emotion which bonds us all. Love.

Five, floor mounted, high definition screens, set in the York Minster, exquisitely lit, they show a portrait of a York citizen.

Each person is gazing at a picture of someone they love. A picture you never see. Feel each unspoken story as the faces tell the tale of a person they love.

One-Fifth of the Earth's Surface

One-Fifth of the Earth’s Surface is a conversation between artists Hakeem Adam, Maxwell Mutanda and the Atlantic Ocean. Presented as an interactive audio-visual landscape, the project is an explorative online experience that unearths the power of water as a dynamic and fluid archive.
