The result is a new aural artwork called LIV/MAN Part 1+2 that can be heard at Manchester Art Gallery and the Walker, Liverpool.

Lane says, "I've been living in Manchester for 15 years and I'm aware of the relationship between the two cities. Particular at the moment where the North West region is being branded as one place. So in some ways they have to co-operate.

But there is a mythical under lying rivalry between the two cities. I was interested to find out about that in a very overt way so I went out and asked them what they thought."

LIV/MAN Part 1 at Manchester Art Gallery features recordings of people on the streets of Liverpool talking about their impressions of Manchester. Meanwhile in Liverpool visitors can hear what people here in Manchester think about their city.

"The thing about asking Liverpudlians about Manchester is that they immediately know that it is a question they can consider answering," say Lane. "They know there's a relationship between the two cities and that there has been for decades."
