This piece was made during part 1 of 'Response: A Rural / Urban Conversation', an exchange project taking place between VARC (Visual Artists in Rural Communities) and NewBridge Project. Artists from NewBridge spent 3 days at High Green making work in response to the rural location.
A dark room was set up in an old coal shed, which was used to process a series of pin-hole photographs of architectural details which seemed embedded in their surroundings. Sometimes this was because the buildings were old and weathered, in other cases this was due to the growth of moss, lichen and weeds growing on window frames and around door ways.
The piece was presented as a looped DVD, projected against the old stone wall in the interior of the coal shed used as the dark room.
