looking through templates

comparitive city survey: comparable operative/functional areas in London’s business districts Bank, Canary Wharf and Southwark/More London were photographed through templates based on the drawings of typical modern architecture found in Cologne’s Mediapark.

The paper cut-outs act as displays which explore issues of the selective processes of perception – patterns with which to organise the world. It is necessary to regularly update such templates.

The narrow view into the distance hones the faculty of differentiated thought and action. Many urban locations are discerned primarily for their function. The aesthetic dimensions and structural connections are not paid appropriate attention, although an intensive interaction between society and spatial perception exists and an ideological inscription occurs in the physical spaces of our urban everyday realities.
