Photographer's Note

AOOTB = Art Out Of The Box and is a well used term in my area of work - originally used to describe moving visual art from white walled gallery spaces visited by a 'select' audience into any manner of other venues, the street, coalmines, hospitals, car boot sales etc -

The impact of this and my area of work , community or participatory arts in the UK context (it means different things in different places) has also led to all sorts of arts moving out of the box - symphony orchestras working on housing estates, opera in fish markets, poets on buses etc and for me it has led me into many forward thinking strategic planning groups to think about the future of our community.

Don't want to say too much directly about this picture - in the words of the great mathematician 'go figure' - just to say I stalked this location to catch the right moment. It's in one of the main pedestrianised shopping streets of Nottingham at closing time - it's dark, the crowds are thinning out and the shopfitters are getting down to another session of work...........

This one is for Fred (Dolin) whose work on creative compositions I admire very much.
