Will Self: Brixton Speaks. Arts and Creative Lighting. Electric Avenue, Brixton, London

Brixton Speaks is a public artwork by the writer Will Self. “Brixton Speaks is an artwork intended to reflect back at the people who live, work and shop in Brixton Market. Over a month-long period in early summer of 2009, fragments of speech were noted down on Electric Avenue, in the arcades, and along Brixton Road. The aim is not to antagonise, shock, or distort, but to mirror the great vigour, invention and diversity of Brixtonians.”

The sounds, words and conversations are displayed in a light installation on the side of the Iceland supermarket, at the west end of Brixton’s Electric Avenue.
