I am currently reflecting on a series of images that I have had printed for my upcoming degree show here at Edinburgh College Of Art. One of two works that I have in the exhibition is based in a disused waterworld in Leith. The site has been vacant since April 2012 and has proved to be a perfect location for an exploration into a disremembered space. The idea of value of such a space is prevalent as the local community is still in discussions to reopen this site to bring back a valued asset to the area of Leith and wider community. The items introduced to the space could belong yet somehow suggest a belonging to another time, place or society. The obvious nod to expense in the sense of gold and images printed on credit cards suggests the ongoing debate about the site and also the value we put on our own leisure and escapism.
The two images above are part of the series though are not in the exhibition so give you a little taster of the images that will be the show alongside a new sculpture. The degree show is open to the public from the 1st of June till the 9th. If you would like any further information please contact me.
