Sleep deprived and blurry eyed we trudged down to the wall for what we hoped would be the final time. Meldola's Blue and Matchbox cars were the main 2 outstanding walls and probably the most intricate too so we focused our efforts on this end of the street and then worked our way right tightening up areas and adding the final details.
As the Olympics draws ever nearer there are definitely more people wandering around Hackney Wick and during our time at the wall we saw an ever increasing number of journalists and film crews. Today we must have done 10 interviews between us. We were approached by PHD students, local bloggers, a German radio station and even the BBC all wanting to know about the changing face of Hackney Wick and the impact that the Olympics has had on this area.
There is no doubt that the area is developing dramatically and whilst the Olympics is not the sole reason it has definitely been the main catalyst. Change is often greeted with a mixed response and what is seen as negative to one can be seen as a positive to another. It will be interesting to see what happens to the area and also the future of our mural on White Post Lane. I guess that lies in the hands of the Hackney Wick residents as is the nature of public art.
