“Dreaming Tower Ballroom is an arts and heritage project which aims to collect histories and future dreams of The Tower Ballroom at Edgbaston Reservoir.“
For this project I was approached by Iris Bertz Associates to create a visual identity and artist response to the project. The Tower Ballroom was a hub for entertainment and roller skating – so my aim was to create an identity that involves the animals that might inhabit the building, which is now abandoned. These animals take on the roles of the people who may have worked and enjoyed themselves at the ballroom.
For the artist response I created a Craftism (craft and activism) style blanket, involving the memories and future of the Tower Ballroom.
