Duration: 3 min
Synopsis: A large-scale projection on buildings to celebrate the last 70 years of life in the city for Hull City Culture 2017 during the opening ceremony on the 1st January 2017 for “Made in Hull”. Using the style of the original DeadBod Graffiti, the animation show the story of the most famous ‘bod’ in Hull as 2017 sees it come back to life through art. A real-life story has become part of the city’s folklore and it serves as a metaphor for Hull’s own narrative: a city whose people have an unshakeable spirit and resilience, who despite being dismissed, unacknowledged and destroyed through years of recession, will always resurrect and fly to new heights.
More than 342.000 thousand people saw Dead Bod animation for Made in Hull Celebration between 1st and the 7th January 2017. It made Hull the most visited attraction in UK last week, beating both the British Museum and the Tate Modern. “Dead Bod” for ‘Made In Hull’ and ‘Hull City of Culture 2017’, 1-7 Jan 4-9pm at Queen Victoria Square, High street underpass and The Deep
