High Wire

Street Level undertook some community liaison work in preparation for the proposed high-wire walk across the Red Road flats by French artist Didier Pasquette. The event was filmed for an art project by London artist Catherine Yass in association with Artangel, the London-based public art agency. A film made from the attempted walk was shown as part of Glasgow International 2008. Street Level delivered a number of video and animation workshops with young people alongside some street filming documenting local opinion on the proposed event.

The video clip below is an extract from a much longer work of residents of Red Road airing their opinions and thoughts on the proposed event.
