Bridging the suburbs of Cannon’s Creek and Whitby, photographic artists David Cook and Leala Falesuega have worked with students of two schools and their local communities to offer new views of each, and articulate their shared visions for the future – 2020. Installed in the windows of The Old McDonalds the children and their visions stare out from a tivaevae like set of prints, which was accompanied for three nights of a projection of their eyes looking out.
Building on Cook and Tim J Velling’s acclaimed Freeville School Project (TEZA 2013) Cook and Falesuega explore a collective documentary process with the merging of photographs, moving image, words and drawings, producing large public presentations of the work, culminating in its presentation in the windows of The Old McDonalds, 1 Cobham Court.
