'Infosculpture' aims to reflect the personalities of Manor House residents

A CERAMIC 3D data art piece inspired by Stoke Newington and Manor House residents has been unveiled at The Redmond Community Centre.

Named ‘The People Wood’, the conceptual work sees more than 350 mini models combined to create a larger image of the areas N4 and N16. Every tree figure has its own individual colour and contours reflecting each person involved in the project.

Originally, residents were asked a series of questions about their connection to N4 and N16, including how often they speak to their neighbours and to what extent they might give to others.

Computer generated trees were then designed and printed to reflect the answers, creating a version of the respondents’ personalities, according to Andrew Merritt, founder of design firm Something and Son, which made the piece.

Andrew added: “We wanted to involve local people in the design and its culture. The feedback from the people involved has been really good and they did seem to feel engaged.”

The piece is on display at The Redmond Community Centre. It was commissioned by Manor House Development Trust, a social enterprise aiming to involve local people in the regeneration of the district, and funded by Hackney Council.
