The first wall sculpture hangs on the side of a building in the middle of a large new housing development, which is on the flight path into Heathrow airport.
Research for this area discovered a Roman road, stagecoach routes to and from London, watermills, heathland, and extensive apple orchards, which gave way to the modern infrastructure of factories and offices. From this research, Suzanne selected imagery for the artworks. The structure of the artwork depicts Hounslow’s roads as seen above from a bird or plane.
The old Victorian Pillar, the site of the second artwork, is at the entrance. The pillar is covered in a stainless steel intertwined ivy design, making it a landmark or beacon from the road.
