City Centre Exhibition: Sat 24 Nov, 12pm - 7pm. Artist talk 4pm
Seacroft | Beeston | Gipton | Bramley | Holbeck | Woodhouse | Leeds City Square
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. Find out where you can vote in the list of locations below.
At the end of the week, join us in the middle of the city to see six neighbourhoods side by side for the first time.
Beeston, Holbeck, Gipton, Seacroft, Woodhouse and Bramley will all share the same square as artist Rob Hewitt from Redhawk Logistica introduces Measures of Us at 4pm. Enjoy a warm spiced apple juice and gingerbread, and compare and contrast the results from our week-long poll of Leeds. The six boards will be animated by light and sound displays, that you can add to with your own torch. Meet people from across the city and celebrate our similarities for the night.

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.
