MDZ Estate

Experience amusing scenes of mass social, economic and environmental devastation housed within four abandoned concrete tower blocks at a height of 2 metres. Created by artist Jimmy Cauty, ESTATE is a dystopian model village examining the meaning of disaster, utopia, community, home and estate through the experimental medium of model making. ESTATE features two modes; Lockdown, a calm and relaxed type of experience, and Full English, a mode full of chaos and loud noises.

A darkly humoured project, it tours nationally in a 40ft shipping container for visitors to walk through with previous locations including Glasgow, Edinburgh, Hull and Stoke on Trent. The model includes smoke, strobe lighting, wind, loud noises, tiny TV broadcasts and is suitable for adults and children over 5.
