THE WALKIE TALKIE PROJECT – DOORSTEP INTERVIEWS
Artist Michelle Baharier is creating some digital art work inspired by our experience’s of bus journeys/routes and our connection to them. The work is inspired by a poem written by David Morris called Routemaster race, David was a wheelchair user and therefore unable to access the buses until access become a legal requirement.
As part of this project she’d love to talk with anyone who fancies a chat about their experience on the buses (good or bad), Michelle is looking for stories about your journeys whether that be on your way to work, sightseeing out with your friends or whatever your connection is to riding on a double-decker London bus. These will be made into are collages released online and archived at the London transport Museum, and anyone who takes part will receive their own copy. This will take place as a series of doorstep interviews, Michelle will come to you and conduct a short interview/informal chat outside your residence or she can meet you somewhere outdoors nearby if you prefer. We will be following Covid guidelines; using recording equipment with long reach for 2m distance (cleaned in between use) and will provide masks, individual hand sanitiser and antibacterial wipes.
If you’d like to chat with Michelle we’d love to hear from you, please select at least 3 options from the below link. We will only need one session and this won’t take more than 1hr, probably much less. Thank you and we look forward to meeting you soon!
