Greyworld was founded in Paris in 1993 by Andrew Shoben. Having worked for many years as a composer for the narrow and elite world of experimental contemporary dance in Paris, Andrew had become increasingly frustrated. He realised that the more inaccessible and extreme his composition the more credibility it was afforded in these circles. Greyworld was established as an antithesis to this ideal.

Based in London, their goal is to create works which articulate public spaces, allowing some form of self expression in areas of the city that people see every day but normally exclude and ignore.

Greyworld have exhibited their work around the world, with permanent installations in London, New York, Berlin, Paris and Cape Town amongst others. This year, they will be unveiling several new installations in Liverpool, New York, Chicago and Abu Dhabi.

In January 2002, Greyworld created the highly acclaimed ColourStops installation, a permanent work for five bus stops in Bradford, UK. For this, they won a prestigious award from the Royal Society of Arts, and it has been featured in many international journals and documentaries. Andrew Shoben will talk about the work, and reference this to other Greyworld installations, including Sound Awards, and two forthcoming permanent works, at the FACT centre, Liverpool and the Seager building, London.
