3000 to 4000 veterans are either homeless or face homelessness in the UK. This shocking statistic was used as a basis for this street installation which aimed to draw attention to their plight. We worked with a Nottingham-based homeless charity to determine how to best communicate this sensitive issue to a wider public. Two ice sculptures were placed in the public arena and as they melted they revealed artefacts of homelessness. The phrase “Escape from this madness” was recorded from one individual and formed a chilling title for the work.
