David Bellingham: "When Dep and Stephen asked me if they could use my work ‘attack of colour / attack of sound’ for the Monorail carrier bag I was delighted. So we made bags, a poster and some other related ephemera. Tens of thousands of bags later it is now so closely associated with Monorail that I am always surprised to be reminded that I made it. A good test of an artwork is to place it in a functional setting, that is a situation in which it is at work. Monorail put ‘attack of colour / attack of sound’ to work and it seems to have survived. Earlier this year I made a work with Monorail in mind called ‘sounds squeezed from shapes / shapes squeezed from sounds’ that could be seen as a continuation of our ongoing conversation. So now there is a new bag - we will have to see how it does in the workplace."
