Conversations and Memories addresses the thoughts, feelings, fears, losses, hopes and dreams of ordinary people caught up in the horror of war. The artwork consists of groups of steel figures standing in clusters at different locations around the National Tramway Museum site. Five groups represent different scenarios which describe roles that men and women of the tramways played in the 1st World War. The separation of these groups of figures also references geographical separation and could be read as people searching for, or waiting for, each other.
