More words needed…

perspectives-by-giles-millerWe need your help….. ‘Perspectives’ pictured needs more words inscribed on the wooden tiles. Please send us your phrases and words inspired by views from the Surrey Hills.

Perspectives was one of five artworks installed along the Greensand Way in the Surrey Hills as part of the Inspiring Views project. This stunning artwork can be found at the top of Winterfold Hill in The Hurtwood. Created by Giles Miller and his team, the pod-like shelter looks out across the South Downs and cocoons you from the elements with unique wooden shingles. Engraved on each shingle are messages and words from the local community all inspired by the view.

Giles Miller comments “This is a beautifully secretive part of the world , and I wanted to capture that. I hope that it’s visitors will live with and love this new installation for years to come”.

Ali Clarke, Inspiring Views Programme Manager comments; “There are still around 200 wooden tiles without words so we are calling out to the people to Surrey to send in their suggestions for words that could adorn this beautiful piece – we will try to add as many as possible”.
