  • Is this some kind of ‘art’, ‘real’ research, or something else?

An exploration of the degradation of human made materials in ‘natural’ contexts and a tracing of object itineraries across extraction, production, use, disposal and revenance.

Ghost Streets

A screengrab of a 3D visualisation of a house that no longer exists at 131-133 Lower Clapton Road. The building is facing corner on and has broad shop windows to the right and a series of interlinked pitched roofs with chimney stacks. It looks around 18th-19th century in date. The Model is incomplete and in greyscale.

A creative research investigation that aims to visualise at the scale of a single building (131-133 Lower Clapton Road) destroyed during the 1940-41 Blitz where the rubble of Hackney and Leyton Marshes may have come from. This uses map regression, 3D modelling software and photography to re-establish a spatial and temporal link from the void on an urban street to the infilled marshes.
