INVISIBLE WORDS FROM INVISIBLE PEOPLE

'The mass of men live lives of quiet desperation.'

Henry David Thoreau

1854

 

In 2012, a group from Wakefield's homeless community worked with artist Richard William Wheater, on a project aiming to channel frustration through light, and communicate their predicament to the wider public. The results were a series of extraordinary neon signs, four of which have been chosen for display in city centre empty shops.​

 

These four works are now listed in a '7 day' eBay auction, with a £1 reserve. All proceeds will go to Community Awareness Programme
