In order to question the public presentation of art, Atkinson.Davidson creates a web across the former Strathclyde Region. The artist talks to 300 people from Girvan, Lanark, Cumbernauld, Campbeltown, Tobermory and Glasgow and asks: what did you do yesterday? and what is your perfect day? The stories are recorded and the texts returned to each participant for approval. This private, personal engagement is fundamental to the project. To present the work in public, Atkinson.Davidson transcribes the texts by hand into books which are held by the spine on a steel frame structure around the walls of a room. Every five minutes the pages became alive, reflecting the chaos of life. The installation creates a powerful place, reminiscent of a library, but also like a cage. Peoples experiences are captured and yet invested with great reverence.
