What a ride. ‘From Here To Here’ was our most ambitious project to date, and has given 26 more profile and kudos than ever. The fantastic show at the London College of Communication has just come down, but the installation at Embankment station, featuring illustrated excerpts of writing from the book, will be in place until December. Check it out if you possibly can.
Here’s what people had to say about the project…
“The ‘From Here To Here’ project was a true example of creative collaboration at its best. It demonstrated exactly how creative Londoners pull together to showcase a variety of notions relating to one original theme, using not only creative writing and graphic design but video media, photography and sculpture. ‘From Here To Here’ was referred to as the highlight event for the London Design Festival 2005.”Helen Horton Smith, London Design Festival.
“Congratulations on ’From Here To Here’. It is a wonderful piece of work and, speaking personally, I find it uplifting both in its concept and content.” Peter Tollington, General Manager of the Circle Line.
“The Circle Line, that wonderful conundrum that goes nowhere and everywhere in central London, has been celebrated in a rather fantastic manner.” Robert Elms, Radio London.
“Each writer, from shabby King’s Cross to workaholic Farringdon and posh Sloane Square, sees his or her scrap of the city through a different glass. There’s much variety and unevenness, but it adds up to an energetic celebration of my maddening, traffic-clogged, sooty, beloved city.”Kate Saunders, The Times.
