The Giant Poppy Heads

Year: 2012-13

Location: Sheffield

Budget: £25,000

Client: Pennine Housing 2000

Role: Lead Artist 

As part of a larger regeneration scheme in the area, we were commissioned to lead the consultation and creation of a a series of artworks across three neighbouring new parks. Through a year long consultation programme which included workshops, events and activities the community decided on the new name of Poppy Fields for this park. In response to that we created 6 4m high poppy heads which were installed at both entrances to the new park.
