Urban Boundaries, - 2012
An intervention that uses the boarded up shops along the north edge of the town centre of Bracknell as fictional hoarding for an imagined development taking place beyond. There are holes, cracks and tears in the hoardings that give passers-by glimpses of what lies beyond these barricades. And in this case they are presented with not a sea of houses but idealised images of the 'green belt' opening up and extending as far as we can see. The interventions play with the conceptions of space, the imagined and actual boundaries of urban living, and ask the viewer to consider future planning implications on our green and open land.
