OHOS artist Ingrid Jensen is pleased to have two films included in an installation by the London based group of Artists AM Bruno. One of the films features OHOS artist Anna Mitchell. All 101 individual film works by 40 artists are silent and of exactly 101 seconds duration, screened on an array of monitors positioned throughout the space. The project was developed and co-ordinated by Sophie Loss and John McDowall, with additional supervision by Joanna Hill and help from Judy Goldhill, Claire Deniau and Steve Perfect.

In the doom and gloom of the current economic climate, Kate Lockhart’s painting of the London skyline shines like a beacon of positivity, radiant on the walls of Terminal 5. The magnificent, explosively powerful 360-degree view is depicted in a 22 metre full scale mirrored print of the original painting and is currently on show in the brand new wing (Gate C) of T5.A large section of the original painting can also be seen at the Terminal 5 EXPO Fine Art Gallery.
