Architectural Memories

Architectural Memories

Architectural Memories. The Hoxton Project, Hoxton Hall, London, UK  –  Group show, devised by 2Step Digital Arts.

Through light, reflection, projection, echo, layers and repetition, this site specific installation explored the possibility of architectural memories; their storage, their release. The piece consisted of a series of “flakes” of translucent paper/textile with imagery trapped within and projected on it. Victorian cast iron railings echoed as painting on the translucent curtain and as thin “flake” castings, hanging irregularly around the space or as captured ghosts on canvases. Projections included impressions of the building & its “possible experience”. Visitors interacted by travelling in a pool of light where they were captured on CCTV and projected on the “flakes” as the building’s most recent memories.
