ADEPT was commissioned to create a site specific installation for the inaugural Bridges Festival in Newcastle in August 2011

Banks of the Seen was a massive projection in an archway of Newcastle’s Swing Bridge, a scheduled national monument, and evoked ‘the spirit of the river Tyne’.  The projection, a video of the steady gaze of an elderly man accompanied by a soundtrack of waves lapping against a shore, could only be seen through through small peepholes in the clap-board wall.
