|Rules and Regs at South Hill Park, Bracknell, 29 - 30 August 2008|

|Exploring the ideas behind a Post-War New Town like Bracknell - its problems and its strengths - the art work challenges the notion that art can be a tool of social change, and looks to create a situation that encourages a positive dialogue between a public and its representative council(s).
Anthony was inspired to discover that Bracknell means 'braccen covered secret place', and recreated just such a place in the Gallery which hid the Mayors of the Town so that audience members could enter into an intimate question-and-answer session with them.
In an effort to stimulate public debate, a mock-official website was constructed and publicised by the artist as part of Braccen Heale.
