Following the symposium at the Aberystwyth Arts Centre, Jenny invited Niall Maxwell's studio to design an iteration of Hollow.
His studio's response was a spherical shelter that took inspiration from the earth and its core.
Jenny felt the symmetrical design lent itself to the Undegun gallery and to hosting the wide program of events they offer.
Perceived as a 'room within a room' by This Project director Dave Gray, Hollow as shelter, housed spoken word, music performances, live theatre as well as quiet times as a free space.
Closing celebration: Thursday 25 August 18:00-20:30
With special guests including Jonathon Adams, architect of the Wales Millenium Centre
The potential of a void: The old YMCA sits at a point in time. Doors closed, it awaits regeneration and yet inside, for a limited time only, Hollow offers itself as a destination for exploration.
Designed as a future ruin, this memorial to an imagined civilisation takes inspiration from welsh castles and burial mounds.
