We invite you to take part in a unique creative experiment. In different parts of the city, we’ll ask you to answer a question a day for five days.

At shop counters, in the pub or the entrance to the local park, you will find voting boxes displaying a question which you can answer by pressing one of three coloured buttons.

The daily results from each area will be displayed outside from dusk onwards in the form of light sensitive artworks. Shine a light from your phone or use a camera flash to illuminate the display and find out how other people in your neighbourhood responded. More detailed information about the project and how you can vote will be available soon on this page. In each location there will be up to 5 different locations where you can vote.

At the end of the week, come to City Square and see the whole city story form an outdoor illuminated installation: Measures of Us. We invite you to consider the similarities and differences between how people feel in the city and the emotional temperature of Leeds at the moment of Compass Festival 2018.

Measures of Us was originally created through a collaboration between artistic director Orit Azaz, artist Rob Hewitt and researcher Lisa Koeman, on behalf of Birmingham Cathedral and University College London Interaction Centre (UCLIC and ICRI Cities). This special Leeds edition is being led by Redhawk Logistica in collaboration with Orit Azaz.

Redhawk Logistica is the entity set up by artist Rob Hewitt to create collaborative social art projects and artworks that actively involve people. Redhawk often devises site and situation specific pop-up interventions that act as a catalyst to stimulate interactions with members of the public in streets and public spaces, reclaiming civic space.

Commissioned by Compass Festival.
