Bryan and Laura Davies travelled around the north of England in a motor home during January 2008 to research an online expo about public art, architecture, and current lifestyle in the north today. They kept a blog of their experiences and received suggestions from the public, which contributed to the artwork that takes the form of a world fair - with pavilions, celebration architecture and exhibition display. The online presentation brings together 100 models exhibits with documentary material in five themed pavilions.
The Wonderful North is a public art commission by Bryan and Laura Davies with Numiko for the Northern Way and Arts Council England.
