Social Club was a commission for East Street Arts in May 2008 for the exhibition, Journey. Following this theme of journey, the brief was to produce a mobile bar using found materials, which also encouraged social exchanges between bar staff and customers. The project was the result of a set journey from the studio to my home through Leeds, collecting suitable materials along the way. Social exchanges were encouraged through the incorporation if a chess/draughts board on the bar top for customers to play with bar staff, aswell as a selection of self designed beer mats which doubled up as business cards for artists to use whilst networking. The bar is now in the permanent collection of East Street Arts at Patrick Studios and continues to be used as the Social Club bar at all events.
