The Public have commissioned an exciting young British artist to produce a participatory piece of art for the ground floor of the gallery.


Collide-o-scope, by Naren Wilks, is based on his short experimental video piece of the same name. The video combined the aesthetics of the silent comedy era with the latest in digital manipulation technology to create a playful and engaging spectacle. The new artwork will be situated on the ground floor of The Public. As visitors enter the specially constructed white room, multiple versions of themselves are replicated and made visible on the LCD screen. Using the technology of digital video, the fun and engaging piece of artwork, creates and exploits illusions in a unique and playful manner. Wilks, a Bristol based artist, will be in residence at the Black Country arts centre in February 2011. In March a number of regionally based artists and performers will use the installation as a space to develop new work. Collide-o-scope will be on the ground floor of The Public and is free to visit. Opening times: Monday to Saturday: 10am - 5pm Sunday: 11am - 3pm
