SENTINELS

SENTINELS #livingheroes went live on Monday 15th June, with part 2 on Wednesday 17th June, and part 3 on Friday 19th. , and part 4 on 21st June with each portrait created one after the other as we moved from site to site. Each portrait was visible one after the other for around 10 minutes before the next was created on the next tree. CLICK HERE for the portrait images.

The map of locations is shown above, with the projection images from previous nights (trees in pink) available to view. Click with their portrait names, nominators and messages.

During these difficult times, we have partnered with Hits Radio  and City of Trees, to create a unique ‘tree tribute’ to key workers in the Greater Manchester area.

Over the last few weeks you've got involved by sharing a photo of a key worker on social media using #LivingHeroes and they are now set to be immortalised in an art project to celebrate the amazing work they've done.

As part of the project, 33 trees in and around the centre of Manchester will have the face of a nominated key worker projected on it.

City of Trees is a charity which aims to plant and nurture one tree for every person living in the city region (three million trees in total), has created a tree trail in Manchester City Centre with 33 notable trees.

The project, called Sentinels is our response to the coronavirus outbreak, and a way of using our artistic practice as celebration of those people who must continue to work - steadfast and unwavering, through this crisis.

The growth of these urban trees – the green against the grey - remind us of the life force of the many key workers that carry us through these difficult times. By forming each tree via video projection into living portraits, their actions can be celebrated - sentinels stood proud in the city.

Sarah Nurton from City of Trees charity also explained, "We hope this will be a fitting way to recognise and celebrate some of Greater Manchester’s amazing key workers. Each tree has its own unique character and we aim to match that with those nominated in a truly unique tribute."

Here is the list of individuals being projected onto the City of Trees Tree Trail this week. 

Projections take place after dark from around 10.15pm, and are subject to variations on the night. 

The map of locations, more detailed descriptions and nominations is shown above, and follow progress each night live at https://www.youtube.com/user/robvaleartwork/ and on twitter @illuminosvales
