During my MFA I explored the exterior spaces of a 1960’s tower block in the middle of the Oxfordshire countryside, belonging to Oxford Brookes University. With camera and pen, the effects of changing light across the surfaces and around the base of the tower were recorded. The merging of line and shadow, where clarity is lost intrigues me. What is hidden or concealed within these disparate spaces and how does the atmosphere here affect us?
I am currently working on a book documenting in words and images the effects of this space on the people who have lived, taught and worked here since 1965.
