18 January 2017: Flats in Hulls Thornton Estate are lit up this evening by an art installation, I Wish To Communicate With You, which is part of the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 Made In Hull celebrations.
I Wish To Communicate With You is an ambitious mass participation project engaging local residents in a major art installation. Over the upcoming weeks Thornton Estate will get a full colour makeover with the majority of the 600 residents, living in 240 homes, across the five high-rise tower blocks participating in this large-scale light installation.
The initial concept for the project was developed by Italian artist Silvio Palladino who had a residency in Hull in 2014-15. He returned to the City this evening for the switch on.
