Working with the Slade School of Fine Art, UCL in London, four artists – in China, Uganda, Israel and Australia –each filmed a 12 minute video in a locale connected to their work, under the title The View From Here. These were each sent to a writer in their country to write the radio drama they inspired.
Three were recorded in London, the fourth in Australia and students and staff from the Slade designed the website and sound for the final programme. The broadcast coincided with a private showing at the Slade of new works created around the "expanded radio" it embodied by PhD students from the Slade and The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL.
The View from Here was a collaborative project between UCL’s Slade School of Fine Art, the Bartlett School of Architecture and BBC World Drama.
The artists are Barb Bolt (Australia); Daudi Karungi (Uganda); Shuli Nachshon (Israel) and Xioapeng Huang (Guangzhou). The writers are Charles Mulekwa (Uganda), Katie Hims (Israel/UK), Noelle Janaczewska (Australia) and Dino Chapman & Simon Wu (Hong Kong/UK).
