LOW PROFILE collaborates with Harris
For the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE
Text taken from LOW PROFILE Vimeo.
“In early June 2019, LOW PROFILE commissioned Laserline Road Marking Ltd to paint the word ‘PEOPLE’ on the forecourt of Preston Bus Station – creating a temporary artwork for visitors and passers-by to engage with. The artists were interested in using this format to mimic the way that road markings normally direct our attention and behaviour, shaping how we navigate through public spaces. The creation of the text makes a statement about this part of the bus station’s future use as a new public space for Preston’s residents and visitors. The text disappeared as the forecourt underwent further development in Autumn 2019.”
The Harris was delighted to be a partner in this and the 2019 Bus Station exhibition was a huge success, resulting in over 15,000 visitors.
