The changing face.

  The Changing Face is a celebration of Berwick’s contemporary society – specifically its youth – providing an alternative to Berwick’s past and its much-celebrated heritage culture. This large-scale outdoor projected installation will be sited at the juncture of Berwick’s points of transit, the crossing of its three famous bridges with the River Tweed, the geographical division between England and Scotland. It will consist of a dramatic series of morphing portraits and text, suspended under the central arch of the Royal Tweed Bridge, creating a mirror image through its reflection in the river below. Seen from the Old Bridge and Quayside, it will offer a complex and socially dynamic welcome for the visitor, one that is not solely based on history, but complemented by a focus on the present and future potential of the region.
Created with the participation of over 200 young people between the ages of 14 and 18, the project is a collaboration with the community to create a spectacular event that focuses on Berwick’s contemporary society, producing a collective ‘face’ whilst still recognizing difference.
