'Proteus Project' by Avelino Sala

'Proteus Project' by Avelino Sala
I also saw pasteups with this image around the Boundary Estate. It's a collage, based on a photo of the Elephant Man (from the movie): saysomethingfunny.files.wordpress.com/2009/01/elephant-ma...

Avelino Sala takes inspiration from Joseph Merrick – the Elephant Man- to think about the psychogeography of the East End and how migration and remixing might define a nomadic icon of the area, a collage of the cultures and mix of traditions that coexist in this area. By taking photographs in the Boundary Estate of people of 23 different nationalities, Sala gives form through their sampled faces to the face of the new Elephant man. The image is also returned to the streets in the shape of stencils, on the walls of the neighbourhood where the photographs have been taken, paying homage to plurality.

Rochelle School arts centre, Club Row, Arnold Circus.
