To Have And To HoldA new digital public art commission by Donna Leishman Running from
Next event: Tuesday 27 July at 8am
An unmissable new digital artwork which marries centuries old Chester folklore with 21st Century technology has been unveiled by Storyhouse.
Researcher and visual artist Donna Leishman’s augmented reality work To Have & To Hold is the latest public art commission by Chester’s acclaimed cultural centre.
Anyone with a smart phone can enjoy the work which is accessed through a QR code or via a website on your phone or tablet.
The artist selected and responded to three pieces of Chester folklore – the story of Charlotte Lucy Beatrice Egerton, Billy Hobby’s Well in Grosvenor Park and the city’s ‘impossible’ stairs – to create the online body of work.
And to emphasise that folklore is living and ever evolving, people are also encouraged to voice their own thoughts and stories through a link on the project website.
