PERMANENT ARTWORK AT THE NEW UCL STUDENT CENTRE, 2019: ‘Venice at a distance’

The overlay of images gives a painterly effect to the composition as if through the dense and humid air, the masses of buildings gradually dematerialise in the glowing light of Venice’s hazy and cold autumn days. Absence means to be away. This image represents the city of Venice as a place that remains away from our grasp, so we can recreate it through our memory and imagination. This work forms part of my PhD in Architectural Design thesis “Absence through layering: from experiencing urban leftovers to reimagining sites”, The Bartlett School of Architecture, UCL 2017.

PART OF ‘FILM MAKING SPACE’ EXHIBITION AT THE Royal Academy LONDON, 2017

Photographer kneeling and taking a picture of a couple of barges floating in the canal on a foggy day. Layered composition made of videos taken near St George’s Church in Burgess Park, in February 2015. The site was formerly a dense industrial setting and was crossed by the Surrey Canal until the 1970s. This waterway was filled in during the construction of the park. A photograph taken back in 1925 (available in the Southwark Local History Library and Archive) portrays what is described in the title. All videos layered in the sequence focus on the absent photographer’s viewpoint. More information: https://filmmakingspace.wordpress.com
