Are migrants not human? / billboard

Billboard project organized by Metal Peterborough, inspired by Anton Chekhov's quote "the role of the artist is to ask questions". Ten artists from the UK were invited to spend four days in Peterborough working in a lab, where each one was given a question by a leading cultural member to work with for the billboard designs. Writer Yasmin Alibhai-Brown threw "Are migrants not human?", and I was in charge of the image making of her statement. The final piece was located in Lincoln Road, one of the areas of the town with a greater immigrant population.

All the billboards were displayed during September 2014, coinciding with the Peterborough Arts Festival.
