Navigating History – 10/9


Navigating History/ 10/9  – Lewes East Sussex 2004/05

Commissioned by Deborah Smith and Alice Angus to work in response to the East Sussex Archive in Lewes, East Sussex. In response to the project Neville Gabie chose to develop his own archive inviting anyone within East Sussex to contribute using their own diary entries from September 10th 2001 – the day before the twin Towers in New York were destroyed. The intention was to consider what an ordinary day in a small English community was like in the hours before 9/11. The work was first exhibited as a series of billboard images taken from the diary contributions. A publication was printed the following year using the diary entries along with a specially commissioned poem notes to my future self –  by Brighton based poet Ros Barber
