“I used to live in Kings Cross in the late 80’s. In those days it was south of the Euston Road”
AIR makes silent walks to prompt paying attention to the everyday state of a place and the walks are often the beginning of something else. The ‘Where is Kings Cross’ walk has been developing over the last two years since Central Saint Martins moved to the Granary Square site. For TCCE’s Winter Walking Weekend it will weave two overlapping circles through the neighbourhood’s rapidly changing and increasingly contested public spaces.
AIR is live projects studio at Central Saint Martins working with student and professional artists through commissioning, research and experiential learning. AIR tests an expanded site-specific art practice responding to social, economic and political, built and lived qualities of place. www.airstudio.org
