Ethnography of a bus shelter
What happens when you turn a traditional bus shelter into a piece of art? Brighton and Hove Bus and Coach Company (part of the Go Ahead Group) recently commissioned artists to paint a Grade II Listed bus shelter in bright and colourful paints. The bus company wanted a collection of stories from people that experienced the temporary piece of artwork.
We asked passers by to record their thoughts in sound and on postcards. We delivered the work as a digital book and audio material. The work will be used alongside other traditional market research to understand the impact this kind of project has on the business and community.
