This is a project I organised in 2004 in one of the derelict high rise buildings in the Gorbals. The aim was to celebrate the relatively short life of the building before it disappeared forever.
The objective of this exercise was wrong that these buildings are demolished without a trace, like so many of the homes that have been part of Gorbals’ heritage. The lamps in each room were connected to a computer which I programmed to generate the sequences, some of them designed by local children who lived in the tower blocks.
