Re-writing the rules of the gallery to encourage some kinds of play and not others is neither an easy task or a particularly obvious one to get right. I felt Nicky's playful drawings would offer a textural layer to explore as people tried to become familiar with the parameters of the work. Over time as members of the public have returned again and again these new rules start to self regulate and become familiar.
One thing we have learnt is that many people want to go further. The invitation to interact has whet their appetite. There is more here to explore.
