Throughout August, artist Mark Anstee is creating RedBlueRedBlue, a live art installation at the Imperial War Museum North. From 12pm to 1pm each day, Anstee will work from a pod in the heart of the museum, drawing red and blue army action figures, which will be projected live onto the museum’s walls. Each day’s drawing will be a reaction to the previous day’s, so will create a virtual battlefield of two forces trying to out-manoeuvre each other. Over the course of the month, the interior of museum will be transformed into a giant kaleidoscope of red and blue. Visitors can become part of the artwork by sharing their pictures with the hashtag #RedBlueRedBlue. This installation is part of Reactions14, a series of specially commissioned artistic pieces commemorating the centenary of WWI.
Tue 5 – Sun 31 Aug, IWM North, The Quays, Trafford Wharf Road, Trafford Park, M17 1TZ, 12pm – 1pm, FREE, www.iwm.org.uk
