A temporary commission for Gateshead Riverside Park as part of Rednile Project's 'Final Frontier'.
'Stand by' combines elements of play and utility, embodying ideas of an idealised past, means of communication that may or may not function, and a longing for common social spaces and acts that are hard to find. Both celebratory and melancholy, the work acknowledges contrasting aspects of the park's identity and people's relationship to it.
