The brief: The studio was approached by Mark Wallinger and Tate Britain to carry out a facsimile reproduction of the protest by Brian Haw in Parliament Square, London. We were to reproduce all of the items which formed the 40 metre demonstration two days prior to its removal by the Police. This was undertaken almost entirely from photographs, all the readymade items such as teddy bears, umbrellas and thermos flasks were identified and sourced. The painted or printed banner images were scaled and reproduced in a manner identical to the original. Over one thousand, five hundred items were amalgamated to reproduce the demonstration.
