This panoramic was originally commissioned by SONY and the Baltic Center for Contemporary Art in Gateshead, England. We went to Gateshead and Newcastle (Gateshead's more affluent cross river rival) and quickly had some very amusing surface impressions of life in this Northern urban area. Those impressions coupled with events going on at the time (war in Iraq, fears of air terrorism), our amusement at Chav culture in the UK, and the return of the veggie eater monsters from our original London panoramic 3 years earlier formed the basis of this panoramic which revolves around a competition by the two championing robots of Gateshead and Newcastle.
