2014 DEGREE SHOW
The Village was an ambitious long-term project that combined model making, photography, lighting effects and audience participation to create a living, breathing model village.
The aim of this project was to build a world that could be anywhere or nowhere. Once the construction was completed people could interact with The Village and in doing so, they would draw their own experiences and come to their own conclusions over what this place was. The sun would rise and set at their command, people would embrace the big picture and marvel at the small details.
My main motivation for this piece was so people of all backgrounds could enjoy, be it other artists, the public, young and old. It was also a lot of fun to create and I couldn't imagine a better way to spend a year.
