Stockton artists, Dave Allinson & Michelle Tripp created an art trail for the Festival - installing new artworks in retail spaces, public places, and other unusual locations around Middlesbrough. In Trans-Plant, the artists transformed the BBC bus, turning it into a ‘conceptual garden’ with film and animated material based on the theme of growth. Simple Mechanisms was an installation in the Thistle Hotel, which featured machine ‘robots’ navigating pre-mapped landscapes. Flag-block in the 02 shop window used material designed to fool security firewalls, to avoid being flagged as junk mail.
