This piece is based on the Happiness and Wellbeing data published following a survey carried out by the government. The range of data available at the time of making (2013) was 2006 – 2010. The map shows the 2006 figures in colour coded form. The figures for 2010 are overlaid on a second layer of glass – showing the changes in the data. Red/orange is unhappy – yellow, neutral and green is happy. I decided to call it ‘Only Happy Round the Edges’. This is almost true – the only place in central London that got happier over the years of the survey was the City of London – go figure, eh??
