With our expert working within the business industry it took some time to explore artistic ways of representing enterprise in a installation. We thought of creating a tree, arrange shoe boxes with local Sheffield businesses and lights and a set of plastic cuboids and having words hanging down with lights.
Cheryl Plant works for Sheffield city council and gave us some information on enterprise in Sheffield, a diagram to be specific of the Sheffield enterprise pipeline showing the educational stages in life. We came up with the idea to create acrylic square tubes but then developed this into circular to represent the ‘pipeline’.
‘Sheffield Enterprise pipeline’
Each acrylic pipe will represent a learning stage primary school, secondary school, college, university and entrepreneur. The tube will be filled with keywords dangling down and fairy lights.
