Confused Lines

Last week I attempted to combine my concepts and “key words” by producing one summary image. In order to do so I focused on the most important and provocative elements of my research so far and compiled a list of key themes within my project to reflect upon.   From which I decided that layers…

[Emerging from the Tangle]   1 Site Map 2 Battersea Through Time Layering of old maps. Understood railways dominated Battersea Fields first, and formation of Queenstown Road (main thorough-way untill today) was partly influenced by personal interest of those in control of housing developments.

Archiving the False

This week I have been curating a collection of the false aspects to the Circus West development.   The model I developed a model to highlight the fact that the columns underneath the railway line are arbitrary. Using a piece of two way mirror, one can see either a reflection of the false environment that…

Sunday Assembly

Yesterday I went to Sunday Assembly, a secular Sunday Service held in cities all around the country. I went the closest one in London where it first began. I wanted to understand the structure of a secular service, it seems a very literal secular translation of a faith based activity and so what is the…

A False Identity

The Circus West development exhibits many contradictions and inconsistencies in the image it is aiming to sell. Under the rail bridge a series of pop-up shops sell contemporary home furnishings such as cushions, quirky ornaments and candles which you can make yourself by taking part in a workshop. Here the materials used feel reclaimed; the…

Return to Battersea

On a return visit to Battersea I intended to document the materials of the area following the feedback from my previous tutorial. Initially I experimented with taking rubbings using charcoal and oil pastel, but struggled to achieve much definition and found it difficult to distinguish between the textures of each rubbing. I proceeded to photograph…

Subnature

David Gissen’s Subnature collects elements within the build environment that are ignored when we discuss architecture and photograph our surroundings. I expected the book to be more of a taxonomy than it is. Rather than being a collection of dramatic or ironic images calling out the industry when it brushes over the reality of sites,…

Tutorial 14/11

After yesterday’s tutorial, I started thinking how I can begin producing pages which can allow me to build up my story. I feel like that I have accumulated quite a lot of information during the past months, but nothing is on paper yet. So, following the feedback I was given in the tutorial, I decided…

Wix Lane Battersea and Clapham Markers

Beating The Bounds

Following my visit to the Archive I discovered there are many of the listed markers still viewable within Battersea: many are listed or protected. I intend to visit as many as possible to understand their location in respect to the current ward boundary and to see their relationship to the surroundings. I am interested in…
