A fellow student and I were commissioned by ‘Castlerock Edinvar Housing Association’ to paint a permanent installation on Edinburgh’s Cowgate. The 10 Pillars are situated on the building of the ‘Horizons Project’, a support centre for vulnerable youths in Edinburgh. Our designs sought to engage with the public and brighten up the area, which has continuously been exposed to vandalism. Through meeting and building relationships with the 'Horizons Project' service users we became acutely aware of the economic and social problems that young people in Edinburgh face daily. We worked alongside the users at various stages of the project, they provided us with positive messages they identify with. These quotations reflect the aims of the project and have been incorporated into the colourful imagery. The text wraps around each pillar, inviting the viewer to stop and interact with them.
