Bobby Moore Bridge, Mosaic, 2022

As a music term, "reverb" references an echo effect or continuation of a sound source which has stopped. Artist Paul J Marks' design process for this new tile artwork was focused on recognising and responding to the heritage of the remaining section of the ‘Live Aid’ panel which sits adjacent to the new artwork. The ‘Live Aid’ concert, held at Wembley Stadium in 1985, still resonates as a significant cultural event for Wembley Park and the local community. This new tile artwork is influenced by images of light displays from graphic equalisers and sound waves from the 1980’s. By referencing images from this period, it visually represents the idea of the continuation of sound, like an echo from 'Live Aid' to the present day.
