CIRCA:
Why is public art important today? How did this inform the work for CIRCA?

ALVARO BARRINGTON:
We need to physically meet strangers. Human energy revolves so much around the physical world and that happens in the public space.

NORMAN ROSENTHAL:
And there are paintings which are about your experience in art?

ALVARO BARRINGTON:
Yeah. So it just kind of feels like wherever I want to go, I want to have the flexibility of saying, this is what I felt at 12 o'clock, you know? And then at 10 o'clock, if I thought something different, they, oh, let me make a painting about me masturbating. Okay boom let's do it.

NR:
So when you saw the big screen, I mean, do you regard the screen in Piccadilly as a kind of canvas too?

AB:
Um, yeah. I mean, I think, I think if you kind of, if one way, one reduction of painting is, is an image on a flat surface.

NR:
Yeah. And the screen is a flat surface, isn't it? The same as a flat surface and it can do certain things, certain things, it can't do. You can't actually have braided hair to the screen and to get the name, but I suppose you could have to, or you could do images could you? And you decided on the clouds?

AB:
To be moving images. Yeah.
