Unnanounced interventions based on Doris Lessing’s short story. A group of alien visitors come to warn the inhabitants of a city about pending disaster.
To their horror they discover the inhabitants are already aware of the consequences but seem unable to change their behaviour.
The work focussed on the alien visitors’ attempts to channel messages through the young of the species.
A contemporary take on Lessing’s tale, young people in Govan, Glasgow looked at adults' responses to climate change and environmental disaster.
Report From A Threatened City announcements were read over the tannoy at Govan High school and at CCA Glasgow for Art Cop Scotland 2015
