Evewright created a new media art installation, #BlackBritish for Talawa Theatre Company’s 25th Anniversary celebration. The piece is made from the answers to the question, ‘To you, what does Black British mean now?’ Multicoloured dots, each one representing an answer to the question, skim across the screen before coalescing into various portraits of Black Britons. Once clicked the dots reveal the answers submitted by the public.
#BlackBritish has a tranquil, contemplative feel about it whilst the wide range of answers to the question are fascinating. Audiences are actively encouraged to post their answers to the question using Facebook and Twitter. The final art installation is projected on wall surfaces real time at Museums and theatres on their touring circuit across the UK with a continuous live update from the internet.
