Do you have any memories of the Piccadilly Circus? And what does the location mean to you for this commission?
When I was a kid, I remember lying in the back of our estate car at night looking out at the lights in the city as we drove through the centre, and the excitement of going past Piccadilly Circus. It’s a place I’ve known all my life. There’s something very special to me about seeing my animations on such a scale, in a setting that is so iconic. But even more significant at this point in time, somehow – because this artwork, that is so much about our times, will be present outside and visible when it has been impossible to share art in interior spaces.
