Can you illustrate what you believe is behind Big Ben?

On Sunday I went to find out what people imagined would be behind the famous Big Ben. My interest was to find how people react when being asked about something which is never really questioned. We are constantly being thrown images of Big Ben in newspapers, postcards, books, art… But what about behind the image? Some people took this very literally, whilst others drew animals, objects, events that represented the tower and what it has been used to depict. The discussion will continue tomorrow and I will bring together how this has informed my themes and grain research.Sketches big ben
