Our piece for Yardworks 2019 - “I Look up at the Same Sky as Everyone Else”, is inspired by retro American motel signage and displays an abstracted scene of holiday-goers who are all looking up. The idea for this piece was sparked in a conversation with Scott Livingstone - a builder from the yard - who is known and appreciated throughout SWG3 for his larger than life personality, not to mention his tuneful and unapologetic singing. In the conversation, Scott was talking about his attitude towards life, and said “I look up at the same sky as everyone else". We decided to pair his phrase with a sunbathing holiday scene, to create a slight play on words, and to add an element of humour.
