Andrew Shoben: Our work erupts from the city

Andrew Shoben’s work does not just exist within the city, rather it is art that erupts out of the city.

Andrew Shoben creates art in public spaces as a way to add creative expression to parts of the city. Shoben talks about his “Trafalgar Sun” installation that explored the psychological effect that the sun has on Londoners.

We gave a little sunshine on one of the darkest days of the year, says Shoben.

For Shoben it is important that his projects have a “community of presence”, something that makes people talk or smile to their neighbours in the city. Shoben also tells of the “3D abacus” that he created for the London Stock Exchange and how interaction is a side effect of all his work.
