ANGEL (OF PECKHAM) is a multi screen video installation in making for I Love Peckham Artists Residency organised by Emily Druiff.

This work is inspired by Camila Batmanghelidjh, a woman who's been working with children in the area and has been known as "Angel of Peckham" and William Blake's vision of angels in Peckham Rye.

It will be displayed in shop window (Currys Digital) from 3rd to 12th August 2007.

safari doesnt alow me to make this a link… but here's a picture too :)

this is actually 2nd incarnation – this means the big box with flying feathers will be 3rd :)
