Bold Street is one of Liverpool's most famous streets and is central to the city's cultural history, economy, and community. The Bold Street Project is a celebration of the street and its people. The project is a collaboration between FACT, tenantspin, and artists Michelle Wren and Katie Lips. Liverpool photographer and artist, Michelle Wren creates a visual representation of Bold Street; a model using 3D photo-montage and mixed media. Community generated content developed by tenantspin and online content developed by new media artist Katie Lips is integrated into the model, and used as a catalyst to extend the piece online. Peering into the shop fronts depicted in the model will reveal exclusive films made for the exhibition, including a new commission The Bolder They Walk by Alex Cox (repoman, FACT patron), Kim Ryan (gente hermosa) and Chris Bernard (Letter to Brezhnev). Bold Street is no ordinary street, and this is no ordinary exhibition. Everything, from work in progress, to interviews and conversations to calls for participation is online at the Bold Street Blog.
