Located on Library Street lamp posts outside Wigan Town Town, Kyle Johnston's text is wistful, yearning and painfully simple; surrounded in space by stars and dark matter. Kyle’s words gives us a glimpse into his life, where dogs are an important part of his family and (since the workshops) he is getting a puppy this month!

“I think it’s a good message and my teacher thinks it’s great. Dogs have always been part of my family."

Kyle Johnston, aged 13 from Wigan
