Thinking about my personal contribution to the exhibition.
Manchester is known as the wettest city in the country, I have decided to home in on this stereotype and play on Manchester strong connection with water, despite it being landlocked.
Manchester is situated next to the Pennines, this attracts large rain clouds that form from the humid air blown over from the Atlantic.
The city is also connected to the Atlantic ocean by a 36 mile long Ship Canal. Which during the industrial revolution was a key feature of the city, allowing it to trade with the rest of the world. Manchester has a very close connection with water, it flows through the culture of the city. I feel that I could really build on this connection, and create something that symbolizes Manchester and its connection to water.
