Bottle of Notes Vox Pop

MIMA (Middlesbrough Institute of Modern Art)

What do the people of Middlesbrough think of Claes Oldenburg and Coosje van Bruggen’s sculpture Bottle of Notes – 30 years after it was first installed? Find us next to the sculpture on Middlesbrough’s Centre Square and record your opinion on film.

The event title, ‘Vox Pop’ means ‘voice of the people’ and will be an opportunity to create an audio-visual record of public opinion on a local landmark. Edited footage will be shared at MIMA and online at a later date. Part of the Secret Life of… Public Sculptures PhD project, led by Karis Richardson in the School of Arts & Creative Industries, Teesside University.
