Visible Virals


As part of the European Capital of Culture Year a programme of art in the public domain has been commisisoned by Liverpool Biennial and the Liverpool Culture Company. Known as Visible Virals, it is a series of socially engaging and playful text works on empty walls all over the city. This is just one of them, to be found on a side wall of a public house in London Road, Liverpool.

72% of people who answered this question in an on-line pole believed they were more intelligent then the average person.

According to the Liverpool Council leader Warren Bradley, and deputy chair of the Liverpool Culture Company,  "Visible Virals will create a great talking point around the city, encouraging people to think about the world around them and the impact that they make as individuals." Whether this is the case I do not know but they are quite interesting.

The chair is one of a pair that in itself forms part of the public art realm.

Yes! When you see the majority of the population about their daily business, that question is a no-brainer! But of course, there are different types of intelligence. I love the idea of this type of artwork - I think it stops you in your tracks and challenges to think.

Les Auld: It certainly is intriguing Ingrid, I will have to try and find the other ones now, thanks for the comment.
What an unusual idea Les, so much different than the graffiti that covers so many buildings these days, or great big advertising hoardings.
Les Auld: Indeed it is Brian, and it does make you think, thanks for the comment.
Doh!!!!!!!!!!!
Les Auld: Right on Bill.
LOL at Bill.
I suppose the average person would think they are more intelligent than the average person.
Who is this average person anyway? I want to meet him/her.
Les Auld: Interesting concept though Pat, thanks for the comment.
