Jane Lyster engages strangers
THE PEOPLE’S CASTLE
Jane Lyster, Dover Arts Development’s second commissioned artist, spent two weeks in Dover during early November working with people in Dover. Her work evolved from the collection of mobile phone images from the public. As she says, “many of us have now become artists; we walk around with tiny galleries of images in our pockets or handbags. Often these are not printed or even transported to a computer; they are carried around and shared with family and friends.”
This project embraces those unseen pictures and shares them with the town.
For Jane Lyster the vital ingredient of her work for Dover town centre is the trust and generous nature of total strangers. All the individual contributors will be meeting at 12 noon on 26 April in the Market Square for a group photo to celebrate their involvement in the project.
