A giant art installation in the city centre, created from 3,550 photographs to reveal the iconic face of 23-year-old Jozef Clark. Jozef’s face was chosen to represent the city, as a young person in the here and now, facing forward on his journey. The mosaic is made up of the photographs collected during the project. People from across the city were also featured in five pop-up exhibitions as ’The Face of SOT on Tour’ throughout 2018. Artist Helen Marshall was commissioned to create the artwork as part of Stoke-on-Trent’s bid to become UK City of Culture 2021.
