Research output: Non-textual formArtefact


‘You Are the Journey’ is a public artwork on a ticket created by art duo Claire Barber and Richard Webb (2006-9). An allegory of textiles is applied to the concept of engaging with the ticket, with weave technologies appropriated into its form and used as a correlation to the commuter patterns created across Southampton Water. Since its completion there have been two routes to create new work. The Directors of the ferry company continue to use the artist's template on the front of their ticket, reflecting the impact of public art at its most ephemeral, while Barber has woven onto the front of discarded tickets, to replace the allegory of weave with the actuality of textiles that bring an illusion of functionality.
