The projects ‘Crowded Room’ are large-scale collaborative portraits.
The projects have invited everyone from a local community to come along and take part in the making of a large collaborative drawing ’Crowded Room.’ This is a portrait of the entire community and consists of the outline of every participant’s body.
The wave of bodies is an inclusive portrait of the whole community, nobody is left out.
When Tim makes a large work it develops through a slow process using individuals, the final piece forms a consuming image for both the people involved in the making and the audience. Collaboration makes the process and ultimately finished artwork more responsive and more human.
