The idea has changed slightly. We’re still looking at the development of Cardiff’s canals/rail roads and how immigration was involved, however the how part has changed.
We’re now looking at presenting our piece on a board that has the canal/rail roads drawn and made onto it then the movement occurs by the viewer actually moving along the board. It’s in a similar style to a board game; the way you travel along the board, but also includes information about the city- almost like a museum piece. The board game idea is going to be based on the competition between the railways and the canals, from Merthyr Tydfil to Cardiff.
This change occurred because on reflection we realised that although the box worked well for the ‘hidden city’ aspect, it didn’t convey the development concept as well as it could.
