Drive Time: New art installation in the Harvey Centre

OPENING on Saturday, a new art installation in the Harvey Centre, Harlow
To the thousands of people passing through the Harvey Centre daily, two cars on the ground floor may seem to have taken a wrong turn – as if GPS has led them up the garden path.
Drive time radio can be heard in the shopping centre and in the companion part of the exhibition, at the Gibberd Gallery, connecting visitors and passers-by. A genre in flux, it refers to an era when listeners were united in transit and is a platform for dialogue about how it feels to be travelling. Samuel Padfield’s dramatic intervention in the town centre explores that state of disassociation, and creates a route to Harlow’s legacy of social space coupled with public art.
