(March 2018) Project Proposal: [Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre] Everyone’s asking if I’m ok // No one’s asking if I’m ok

‘A form of colour matching, a statement, disruption, expression of a mood / anti-mood; the resulting objects will engage with the poetics – or non-poetics – of space.’

I will use print based installation to present an examination of human memory and highlight the temporary nature of spaces that are soon to be demolished.

Specifically, I am interested in photographically documenting ongoing process of demolition, construction and subsequent gentrification that is associated with the imminent regeneration of the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre. This visual information is then processed through collaging, using a mixture of different scales, with the aim of reconstructing the original experience of the space in a physical form, not just through memory.

March 2018: Using Historical Photographs as a Starting Point

I am interested in using my practice to create a physical archive of everyday life, in particular typically working class situations, which in Brighton (which has long been gentrified) are hard to come by. I am interested in finding the spaces documented by Gray and others who are included in the collection and documenting the physical and psycho geographical changes that have occurred. 

Photographic Documentation of Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre – March 2018

I am interested in using my practice to create a physical archive of everyday life, in particular typically working class situations, which in Brighton (which has long been gentrified) are hard to come by. I am interested in finding the spaces documented by Gray and others who are included in the collection and documenting the physical and psycho geographical changes that have occurred. 
I am aiming to document the psycho-geographical experience presented by the Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre, (South London) in order to create a site specific print based, mixed media installation.
