'I draw what I see and paint how I feel' LS Lowry

Anthropologist Dr Jessica Symons worked with artists Jacki Clark and Amber Sanchez and visitors to the Immersive Lab at the Landing in MediacityUK to make work that responds to art by internationally famous local artist L.S. Lowry.

At a series of open studios at the Landing's Immersive Lab in MediacityUK, people were invited to look at LS Lowry's sketches and paintings of Salford and discuss how his work connected with them. They used Google Tiltbrush, a 3D drawing tool, to sketch out ideas inspired by his work.

In these digital 3D sketches, you can see ordinary, everyday life, the famous dull grey skies of Northern England, cold and hunched people. You also see how buildings, factories and houses bring a sense of order, with people as the soft bits in between. Lowry's work stimulated interesting discussions about community and what brings purpose and pleasure to our daily lives.

Download the app, take it to the 2019 Lightwaves Festival in Salford Quays near Manchester, find the 'trigger images', open the app and point your phone camera at the images. See Lowry-inspired 3D digital artworks will 'pop out' for you to enjoy, take photos and share through social media.
