I LOVE DONNY was an installation, using postcards, to create a map of the town through the experiences of the people who live there. Members of the public were be invited to share their favourite stories and memories of Doncaster, write or sketch these on a postcard and add them to the map. There was also a Twitter account, allowing people to tweet their responses or go online and read other peoples’ postcards and see the town through someone elses’ eyes.
