Edge Hill Station Garden Launch
For European Day of Artistic Creativity, Metal will be formally re-opening the Edge Hill Station Garden for the growing season with the launch of a new artwork by network engineer Dave Evans. Following a three month residency in the garden, Dave will be unveiling an organic wi-fi mast with the capability of emitting an open access network accessible to garden users and commuters.
Developed in collaboration with rail users and garden volunteers, this online space will aim to provide an alternative experience to people looking at their phones during the boring commute, who otherwise would not think of gardening or communicating with each other. It will bring attention to the hidden parts of the internet, the radio waves, the rhythms and the physical, real world objects the internet needs to function.
Join Metal from 5pm – 7pm on 21 March for an evening of food, music and the ceremonial unveiling of the totemic wi-fi mast.
Event Date: Wednesday 21st March – Wednesday 21st March 2018
Location: Edge Hill Railway Station, Tunnel Road, Liverpool, UK
