Future Garden let individuals explore Sneinton Market in Nottingham to discover the effects of city planning, alternative futures, lost histories and individual dreams. A handheld computer presented participants with a structured self-guided tour. At nine different physical locations, the screen showed images of the existing market overlaid with new architectural designs. These drawings, collages and animations – inspired by the dreams of current market users – were interspersed with archive photographs, documentary film footage and a short dance film, inviting people to reflect on the urban space that they inhabit and the ways in which it might be transformed.
