A council boss says a £28,000 3D art projection in the town centre is ‘wonderful’ and hopes more can be created in the future.
The projection was launched on Friday under the arches off Market Square and will be shown every evening until mid-November.
It features people talking about living in the Vale – from a man talking about all his pets and someone who lives on a boat to a resident moaning about Aylesbury’s traffic problems and a woman saying she doesn’t feel safe in her own home.
The council commissioned the work but it was paid for via funding from the Arts Council and created by Shared Space and Light, the firm behind the amazing Paralympic projection on the crown court last year.
Councillor Howard Mordue, Aylesbury Vale District Council’s cabinet member for leisure, said: “I think it’s wonderful not only for Aylesbury but the Vale as well.
“It is a first for the company in terms of a semi-permanent project and it is certainly a first for Aylesbury Vale and a new form of art.
“I think it has been done very well, especially the bit with the all animals. I think it captures the imagination.
“Subject to funding I hope we will be able to do other displays in future on different elements of Aylesbury life and its history.”
