We brought together all the contributions from those we have met during the artist residency and drew upon the ideas and themes that were emerging.
We heard from many voices and recognise the value of people sharing their experiences. We also recognise the need to highlight the great things that have happened, are happening and have the potential to happen in this place and it’s people.
The railway station artwork aims to tie this learning together and create a moment in this place.
Initial design thinking explores the ways the furniture and features join together to make an impact. We will make use of a familiar and common visual language that ensures that colour, design and features work together cohesively.
The designs for the station need to shout about Shildon. We are exploring ways in which visual ideas for the station area can do this from signage and waymarkers to flags.
We are looking forward to developing this work and sharing ideas with partners and those involved.
