An eye-catching 3D projection in Market Square will be turned on later this week.
Commissioned by Aylesbury Vale District Council, the art installation beneath the arches of Long Lionel will show people from all walks of life talking about where they live, juxtaposed with images of their stories mapped into the existing architecture of the building.
It has been created by video mapping specialists Shared Space and Light, the team behind the amazing projections at the Paralympic Flame Celebration in Aylesbury town centre last year.
The £28,000 project is funded by Arts Council England. The district council hopes it will boost the night time economy and inspire more arts projects in the town centre.
Entitled Home Sweet Home, it will be shown from 7pm on Friday and continues until 11pm every evening until mid November. It is about 10 minutes in length and plays continuously on a loop.
A man who lives on a narrow boat, a man who lives in a converted milk dairy, a disabled artist and a previous winner of a competition to find the best house in Aylesbury are just some of the people who volunteered to be filmed.
Councillor Howard Mordue, cabinet member for leisure, said: “We are delighted to receive arts funding to make the Home Sweet Home project a reality. This artwork will be both inspiring and engaging. Home Sweet Home is great news for Aylesbury and is one of many events in the town’s calendar that help galvanise Aylesbury’s position as an important cultural hub.”
