An ongoing project documenting the places that we live. As the world population grows our places of habitat are becoming progressively smaller. The gaps between them narrow, the buildings grow ever taller. In the search for employment and prosperity, people move away from rural areas towards cities that are hugely overpopulated, forcing the divisions of those habitats into even smaller spaces. From the failed concrete utopia of the former Yugoslavia to the constant growth of China’s cities at ‘Shenzhen speed’ the project contrasts and compares the environments that we inhabit.
Exhibited at the Phil & Lit, Hexham July – December 2019
