Let’s Make it Happen

Lucy Joyce

Let's Make It Happen was a collaboration between Lucy Joyce and the residents of Queensland House to examine visibility, regeneration, and cooperation, and made a sculpture with the nineteen-story building.

The arrows, they were saying look up away from your electrical equipment, look up and look around you! North Woolwich resident

The arrow is a symbol of hope for me – a directional motivation for people to look up, an existential mark pointing elsewhere above, creating questioning and a momentary displacement from our position in the world. Lucy Joyce

Lucy was commissioned as part of Tidal Twirlings in summer 2016, supported by London Borough of Newham and Arts Council England.
