Between 3 and 4pm the adverts will stop and the giant screen will host an alternative stream of provocative, 10 second animations of just four words each.
Alan Dunn, a Liverpool Art Prize 2012 nominee, has collaborated on or appropriated existing texts from 108 individuals, from world-famous artist (Gerhard Richter) to lesser known contributors (Captain Pengelly, a retired seafarer).
Each set of FOUR WORDS will act as a counterpoint to the sales season and the invisible pressures of this time of year, with ruminations on value, money and exchange.
This was followed by an evening event at the Small Cinema where the animations were screened again.
The other contributors include Gerhard Richter, Douglas Coupland, Shaista Aziz, Pavel Büchler, Fiona Banner, Levitt & Dubner (‘Freakonomics’), David Shrigley, retired seafarer Captain Pengelly, Hala Al-Alaiwat and ex-Liverpool FC striker David Fairclough, Hala Al-Alaiwat, Sean Ashton, Clarisse Aubert, Chris Bishop, Jessie Brennan, Billy Cancel, Jayne Casey Roger, Cliffe-Thompson, Ade Blackburn, Zak Dunn, Nina Edge and Jack Ehlen.
