  Reclaimed and found materials
  Vigilance is a location-specific installation sited in two vacant shop units at the Duke Street entrance to the Mall in Barrow-in-Furness.

The form of the work is derived from the curved bow of the Vigilant, a Vanguard class nuclear submarine built in Barrow.

The intention of the work is to make it appear that the submarine has dropped onto the building. However, instead of demolishing it, the building has adjusted itself to accommodate the shape of the hull.

The work will be visible only through the windows of the shop units, no member of the public will be allowed inside the units. It will be constructed on-site mainly from reclaimed and found materials.
