Over the past few days, Janie and Rachel have been sticking newspaper cuttings and extracts from magazines onto the wall of The Old Hairdressers, creating a wave design.
This process was captured in a stop motion animation.
Now it is up to visitors to the exhibition to continue developing the work.

Using Hokusai's "Wave" as a starting point, combining paint and assemblage, she will be inviting artists and the public to contribute text, image or objects on the theme of 'Angst', to a wall sized installation. Contributions will be added into the installation over the course of the week in a large scale public outpouring, and will contribute to a closing event in collaboration with sound artist Harry Wilson, on Thursday 11th July.
Nicoll uses spontaneity, interaction, and collaboration as a working method while building on recent collaborative residencies in the form of a Rough Mix Residency at Tramway, for Magnetic North Theatre Company and a CCA Creative Lab for Counterflows Music Festival, with experimental Sound Artist Annette Krebs.
