Archive, mapping and filming
Latymer Projects and I have just completed a 7 week community mapping project and will produce some analogue and hopefully digital maps that are focused on this unique area of North Kensington. I describe it as the Latimer triangle; in essence, the Silchester Estate framed by Bramley and Freston Roads.
We have a stall at the St Helens's 2012 Diamond Jubilee Festival on June 9 from 12-6pm. This is an opportunity to trial some of our maps and capture feedback from local residents.
I'm currently doing background research for a film project about 154 Freston Road, a former day care nursery and now being used as an artist space and the location for Latymer Projects. It will be closed and demolished over the summer as part of a major regeneration of the estate. I've previously made Flood Light and Home, exploring the built environment and housing issues. This new project will complete a trilogy of film work about the area.
