Radion Project

I was asked to contribute towards the Radion Project by choosing a piece of heritage that I think should be celebrated.  I decided to choose a picture of the building at East Square before the work on the new cinema started as it is often the case in local history books that you see the past and present picture and it's good to see what was there before.  As it says on the Radion website:

"A broad range of archival and present day photographs have been selected to create a panoramic visual depicting an alternative skyline of Basildon's heritage past and present from a chronological perspective."

This will be one of two panoramic images that will be displayed on a lenticular screen as part of the new cinema in Basildon.

I have also been asked to do a small audio piece that will add to a local guided tour of each piece of heritage included on the design, this will be accessed by a QR code.

If you're like me and can miss the subtleties of a website, when you go onto the Radion Project page of the website: you are meant to click on one of the various diamond shapes.  If you click on the green one it will tell you in detail about the heritage part of the project.

The other side of the lenticular screen has involved ten local primary schools.  More can be found out about that here.
