As part of the project Lucy made a new film with two local residents who were among the first to live in Balfron Tower, a father and son who arrived in 1968 when the son was only eight days old and who have lived in the neighbouring block to the tower since moving home in the late 1970s. As well as exploring their memories and feelings about their time in Balfron, the film explores the father’s own creative endeavours which have transformed the interior of their current flat through a collection of collages and sculptural assemblages which have never before been viewed in public.
A new publication designed by Modern Activity was launched, including writing by local residents produced in a series of workshops led by Lucy Harrison and artist Rehana Zaman, as well as anonymous contributions placed in a post box in the local community centre during the course of the project.
