smelly barry

A while ago 3rd year BA graphics students from LCC came down for a one day project. We decided to go and investigate the local area to unearth some ‘under the surface’ stories. The students dug deep and gleaned some surreal anecdotes about local characters. The idea was to collect material for ½ a day and make stuff reflecting it with the rest. Acuminating with a window installation. It was pretty frenzied afternoon and we called for wine and chips for the Crit at 6pm. It took me best part of a week to scrub the words ‘Smelly Barry’ off our window, and I was concerned that Barry himself would see his life story laid bare and come knocking for an explanation.
