Working Beautifully

A visualisation of the effort, determination and trade of 100 local businesses in this town
 
Brunel Shopping Centre

Monday 20 - Sunday 26 May 2013

Swindon, the town often cited as the most accurate benchmark of the UK economy, will come under the spotlight in May 2013 when workers at one hundred of its firms feature in an art show celebrating its enterprise and trade.

Photographer Nigel Hudson and artist Timothy Cumming have visualised the effort, determination and trade of 100 local businesses in this town - the UK's fourth most productive and fourth largest growth economy outside London.

 
"To us, it seems that the full British economic story needs a fuller telling," says Hudson.

"Slowly, the country's on the rise, though media attention sometimes obsesses over the bad news, missing the good. So we wanted to provide a little balance - to picture the potential of the nation through skills, hard work and trade, because they're the tools of our recovery. Swindon has a trading history within the UK, which to us, mirrors the UK's trading history with the world."

"Swindon trade is the perfect small-scale model of UK-international trade, complete with all its regional relationships and entrepreneurial spirit, says Cumming.

"Each of the 100 firms we've selected has shown the grit and guts necessary to thrive, even in a tricky economic climate. Worries about a triple-dip recession simply do not match the attitude or prosperity that we witness in these firms."
 
Working Beautifully features over six hundred original digital paintings and photographic composites created by Hudson and Cumming over the last twelve months take a glimpse behind the scenes of the some of the South West's largest and smallest firms.

The show runs from Monday 20 May for one week at the Brunel Centre in Swindon.
