The Loop

'The Loop' is a project focusing the attention and imagination of the Alt Valley community on the Liverpool Loop Line Cycle Track.

Artist collective Re-Dock, are working with groups around Alt Valley, using a mixture of old and new creative technologies, from Hula-Hoops to Computer Game Design, to look into the participants relationship to the Loop Line and envisage where it might go in future.

Young people from Rice Lane City Farm and Norris Green Detached Youth Project are responding to the brief.
"If the Loop Line were a computer game, how would it play?"
"Who would you meet?"
"Who would you avoid?"
"What would you collect?"
"What would be the aim of the game?"
