She Is My Spy As I Am Hers

In Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, the handmaids have shopping partners, so that they are always under observation: “She is my spy as I am hers”. Artist Leo Boyd adds to the dystopian air of the book by combining the handmaid (from the new TV adaptation of the book – currently available only in the US) with an outdated computer monitor. Here is some of Leo’s previous work.

A River Runs Through It

The river in question is the Farset, which in the late 1700s was still open in what was then the Back-Of-The-River area and is now Bank Square. It was all covered over by 1804.
These are just three of the pieces that make up the 2015 installation by Annemarie Mullan, Stephen Mackey, and King Street Arts, of street scenes based “on information from the 1898 census” (CultureNI | Love Belfast).
