My piece, From Northern Soul (Bury Neon), is now permanently installed in the transit center of Bury, Lancashire just in time for the baseball playoffs in the United States. The work, an homage to the great Chico Escuela, is a part of Wharf Hypothesis, which itself is the opening movement of still-in-progress Northern Soul. Northern Soul is a section of Universe. The sculpture is already part of the Irwell Sculpture Trail. This almost certainly will prove to be the most widely read publication I will ever have.
