The ‘Titans’, developed by artist Rachel Tynan and teenagers in Temple Street Childrens Hospital, is an interactive installation formed through a family of beautiful wooden figures. As the figures are moved into different combinations, they reveal sound recordings of the teenagers’ stories. From a Star Lady who heals, to a transforming cheeky Faun, the ‘Titans’ uncover another world that sheds light on the characters and their lives. The installation becomes a tangible interface through which these stories can be mixed together in new permutations.
