Architecture is a practice of amnesia. When projects are completed, the numerous ideas, thoughts, and research that supported their making are most often purged as the project is narrowed down to its essence- typically leaving behind only a set of final photographs and, maybe, a single sketch.
Peter Cook, Plug-In City, 1962-1964
I entered the below work into the A4C: A4 Art For Charity exhibition in Maidstone. This work is influenced by a Promenade Architecturellethrough Canterbury. I was drawn to the patterns I saw and also the variety of spaces that compose Canterbury. I questioned the definition of public space and how it is perceived. I found that by repeating and manipulating everyday objects we often overlook, new patterns and forms can be created. It can also begin to provoke thought and even redefine objects. This interested in pattern and perception is something which I have continued and developed in my work.
