- Lockdown pennydrop
Just Keep Going, 2021
This was a project aimed at distracting people from the pandemic lockdown.
First, we tracked down a really lovely example of an 1895 penny. We gilded it in 23ct gold leaf and on the surface, we painted 'just keep going' in enamel paint. We re-dated the piece 2021 as a little encouragement and memento of a strange time.
We put out one clue a day on social media for a week. Piecing together the clues gave you the (virtual) location of the penny.
The penny was found on 14th Feb 2021 by a person in Cumbria who cleverly worked out where we'd left the penny.
