Street Extraction - Exhibition

Exhibition of Street Extraction series at NewRED

Street extraction draws on my experience of interpreting space as an Architect.  In isolating images from their setting dislocating scale, form and texture I think one is better able to understand what memory does to configure one’s experience of place.  Just as familiar domestic objects employed in still life painting provide a portal for recognisable interpretation; urban extracts do the same for Architecture and the city. 

In taking snapshots of abstracted elements of the urban environment it is possible to both tell a story about a setting and also appeal to one’s more deep-rooted emotive experiences.  In projecting oneself into the environment of a picture one inadvertently allies certain memories and experiences to it.   When strung together these experiences transcend both time and connect with a sense of place.  Collectively these contribute to a more global sense of place i.e. the city.
