Two events took place simultaneously.
Public View, on local landmark Crouch Hill, Banbury, Oxfordshire, with a live-stream broadcast from the event via Periscope app.
Private View, Camberwell College of Arts, London MA Private View, London.
Viewers at Private View could access Public View via Periscope app and Twitter ,
the account Twitter username being displayed on ‘promotional’ chocolates offered in both locations so both audiences could view and join the event on Crouch Hill via the broadcasts, and participate through live chat.
The Periscope audience included followers who had participated in previous broadcasts from the landmark and others close by during the two years of the research, as well as random on-line ‘passers-by’.
The participants in the Public View, similarly were those previously involved, or arriving through happenstance.
The simultaneous events providing a global participating audience of friends and strangers sharing personal and collective experiences in social, geographical and digital space and time
Other events took place during the days of the Show, which are recorded in previous posts.
This is the final post of my Research Blog.

Thanks for looking!
The glass -bowls are all washed and sparkling, then wrapped in several layers of bubble-wrap, packing materials and in boxes ready to go. A strange combination of my personal ‘identities ‘ were referenced by using these boxes, I realised …. and I forgot to mention the choice of glass rather than ceramic. Glass is an amorphous solid but exhibits an atomic structure close to that observed in a supercooled liquid phase. I have chosen to work with glass before as it is both fixed and mutable – appropriate for documentation of an action because of this temporal quality.
I popped into town to buy the parcel tape and went to see how Belflair were getting on with the chocolates.
They were all in the shop and Gillian ( below) was busy wrapping them in the foils!
Wednesday 29th June: I took the glass parcels to Mail Boxes Etc , for Marian and Phil Cullen to send to Wilson Road by courier.
Thursday 30th June: Got back in time to pick up the chocs, all beautifully wrapped, ready for sending tomorrow morning. Gillian was very excited and pleased with the results. So was I. I gave her some invitations for Belflair to the Public View on Crouch Hill on the Thursday 14th and took some to Banbury Print, and Marian and Phil at MBE.
