'the ards rough tour' is a project developed from research
into contemporary vernacular information about the historic town
of Newtownards, located 20 min from Belfast.
The work consists of a cardboard sculptural of the Old Cross, Aa
landmatk that marked the former Ja cobean cenytre of the town.
This model was shown with a animated projection which told a series
of the stories about various landmarks arond the town. These stories
were highlights from the Arts Rough Tour, an alternative contemporary
tour of the town designed and delivered in collaboration with local
historian Paul Whitlea.
The work is concerned with how people describe their locality and
use local knowledge to navigate the urban environment.
