Precipitate is one of a series of temporary Artworks unusually delivered as part of a Section 106 Agreement with Southampton City Council and Linden Homes. These several Artworks all responded to and were located in, notable landmarks and architectural features of the Old Town French Quarter.
This first combines 2nd World War leaflet drops with the luggage labels of the big cruise liners and imported goods. Local school children created their own personal labels including their name and country of origin, and these were assembled as a descending cloud within the old Holyrood Church ruins, itself bombed during WW2 and home to the Titanic Memorial.
As Holyrood is a Scheduled Ancient Monument I appointed ARUP Engineering to collaborate on a suitable, non-invasive fixing structure to host the “cloud”.
