About the work

This piece came out of my experience of trying to reimagine the high street during lockdown. I was finding it increasingly difficult to remember what a high street looked like, let alone reimagine it. As I stared at my computer screen, wondering how I could respond to the ideas FutureEverything and the young people on the project were exploring, I began to dream of a way out – a tunnel out of my computer, that would lead to a space in which I could think clearly, outside of glowing flat screens, video calls, emails, online meetings, spreadsheets, and PowerPoint presentations.

Downloading EXIT will take you through that tunnel in your own computer, and to that space. But don't worry, everything will still be there when you get back.
