Ian Banks acted as public art consultant and curator for Cheshire County Council in run-up to creation of the new Unitary Authorities of Cheshire East and Cheshire West & Chester. Ian explored the strategic public art strategy opportunities for both new authorities linked to a Cheshire Spaces public realm commissioning programme. Part of this involved curating micro art commissions, such as this feasibility prepared by Jason Bruges Studio for a series of peripatetic camera obscuras alongside the River Weaver in the Weaver Valley Regional Park.
