My practice concerns space, place and the archive through a variety of different media. This body of work has originated through an interest in the spaces I occupy on a daily basis; the Clothworkers’ Buildings that house the School of Design. I explored notions of time, place and memory through considering how people engage with the spaces that the building creates. I have integrated the histories discovered in the archive into multimedia forms by shifting our frame of perspective; the visual is now heard, touch is now seen. “Depending on who we are … we understand and engage with the world … in different ways” (Bender 2001) My practice aims to instruct and invite the viewer to experience place in new ways.
