A full size representation of tenement life is depicted in the work which addresses a pocket park, a £40k project to bring to life a redundant scrap of land.
Commissioned by Linthouse Housing Association the banner is product of a series of school workshops which reinterprets the Clyde Tunnel and its impact on the collective psyche of the neighbourhood through the mediums of music, science and art.
