One of several art installations on show in the Haus of Helfa SH7882 : Tedder House/Haus of Helfa as part of LLAWN03.

This shows part of Eloquent Brain, by Lisa Carter LinkExternal link Remy Dean LinkExternal link wrote: "This year Lisa, has developed another idea from her war-related research findings. Again, she has occupied and truly responded to the space, utilising the actual spaces and gaps. White envelopes are placed in a grid pattern, wedged upright using the gaps between the floorboards. Other wooden wedges compress stacks of envelopes along one side of the floor area. The envelopes are arranged so that when the sun slants in through the window, they cast shadows and also reveal their back-lit translucency they are empty. Envelopes immediately indicate correspondence and their emptiness raises questions. So the emptiness becomes poignant. Are these envelopes representing letters that were never written, or thoughts that could not be put into words?"

10,500 enevlopes were used to create the installation.
Llawn03 (Llandudno Arts Weekend #3)
LLAWN is a mini festival that rediscovers and celebrates Llandudno's past via art, architecture, artefact, sound, performance, and participation. Over the weekend of 18th-20th September 2015 a variety of multi discipline events took place in various locations, incorporating buildings (some off limits to the public); the pavement; the promenade; the pier; empty shops; galleries; open studios; the seafront shelters; the bandstand, Victorian Bathing Machines and even a ski slope and a cave.

LLAWN03 introduced an international flavour whilst continuing to reflect and reconfigure the history and culture of its setting with Welsh artists, including Megan Broadmeadow, Eli Acheson-Elmassry, Shani Rhys James, Charles Gershom, Ffloc, the Haus of Helfa residents and others expressing their varied interpretations of Llandudno's past, present and future.
