Ruins and the Urban Environment

Currently working on a project that looks at ruins and their significance within the urban environment.  The word 'ruin' often has connotations of being a magical or interesting place yet the word can also be seen as more negative.  I wanted to show that the everyday ruin can be seen in any street in any town or city, that we are creating a ruined environment. This paper cut out is a view from a tenement window into a street.  The chair represents all the waste that we throw onto the streets; whether this may be furniture that is no longer of use to us or bin bags littered along kerbsides.

As a Textile Student I love to follow the work of others.  Bookhou is an inspiration, hope you like it too.
