Document break. Wonderland in Sheffield: 18 June - 13 July 2008

Document break.

With a radio, television, web and actual visiting audience of over 2.5 million people Wonderland Sheffield was a great success. This evocative work instigated a curious and receptive response at Meadowhall shopping centre, the Botanical Gardens and other sites from a broad range of people. Over the exhibition period the Wonderland partners accrued a wealth of documentation including film, photography, illustration and public comments. These can be seen in the Image library section of this site.

Tony Ryan, University of Sheffield:

“Wonderland has pushed the boundaries of what is achievable to provide remarkable results. I hope the products we have created can provide practical solutions to live issues and that the conversation we’ve started will continue to question our current behaviour and gather momentum. The Wonderland exhibition is all about stimulating the public conscience in visual and dramatic ways, and empowering people to dream about alternative ways of consuming”.

Helen Storey, London College of Fashion:

“We are living in extraordinary and urgent times yet no one has the solutions to some of mankind’s greatest challenges. Now is the time to bring science, art and business together, and through beautiful audacity, rigor and awe help to change our environment for the better”.
