For EU DAY OF ARTISTIC CREATIVITY on Wednesday 21 March Metal will be formally re-opening the Edge Hill Station Garden for the growing season with the launch of a new artwork by Dave Evans.
Following a three month residency in the garden Dave will be un-veiling an organic wi-fi mast with the capability of emitting an open access network accessible to garden users and commuters. Developed in collaboration with rail users and garden volunteers this online space will aim to provide an alternative experience to people looking at their phones during the boring commute, who otherwise would not think of gardening or communicating with each other. It will bring attention to the hidden parts of the internet, the radio waves, the rhythms and the physical real world objects the internet needs to function.
Join us from 4pm on Wednesday 21 March for an evening of food, music and the ceremonial unveiling of the totemic wi-fi mast.
