Ice Cream Vans

I want my studio this year to be light-hearted, more fun, less serious…

The Ice Cream Van’s hide in Hackney Wick, locked away for the winter…their use, and the use of the spaces they transform through action, temporally permitted by our reaction to climate.

What if they could transform the use of space on a smaller scale (both physically, in relation to their immediate surroundings, and temporally, in relation to a small period of the day when they would be active…minutes or hours, rather than months and seasons)…

Ice Cream Vans, through sounds, could entice footfall through routes otherwise unconsidered…the commuting foot traffic tempted through vacant yards, scrambling up banks and over walls to achieve their mundane but urgent goals…
