Ben See & Esmeralda Conde Ruiz


Bright Copper Kettles is a collaborative work by Ben See and Esmeralda Conde Ruiz. The music and video are made in response to artistic contributions from members of the Poplar community. As part of the project Ben and Esmeralda collected written, visual and musical ideas from volunteer participants, all in response to the theme of observing and recognising little moments of happiness and/or distraction amidst lockdown. Bright Copper Kettles is a celebration of creativity and community with the hope of bringing a little comfort during these strange times.
