How Far Are you Prepared to Go? /I am The Work of Your Life, You Are The Work of My Life

How Far Are you Prepared to Go? /I am The Work of Your Life, You Are The Work of My Life

Images from a newspaper collaboration with artist Pete Davies responding to Victorian writer and activist Edward Carpenter and the site of the Commonwealth Cafe on Scotland Street, Sheffield, which he ran between 1887 and 1888 as a radical social space for people to gather, share ideas and organise.
The publication was commissioned as part of the Simple Stories programme,  a year-long series of Sheffield based events, actions and exhibition actions, curated by the Poly-Technic, aka artists Steven Pool and Kate Genever
50 printed copies were produced and distributed at an informal launch event which took place outside the site of Commonwealth Cafe, which now exists as a karaoke bar, in July 2016.
