Some of The University of Manchester’s Victorian buildings along Oxford Road. Includes part of the Whitworth Hall and Manchester Museum. Twenty images, taken over a period of ten minutes, collaged together to form one panorama from multiple perspectives.
An image composed of two framings. One for the lower (exterior) portion (two exposures – the first includes pedestrians on left side and far right, the second for the traffic trails). The other is a composite of 7 exposures for the upper floors, showing the people framed by the windows over a 20 minute period, as they pack up at the end of the working day (4.40 – 5pm).
The location is the Royal Bank of Scotland building on Deansgate, Manchester
These are samples of the images I’m hoping to exhibit at this conference in Liverpool (September 1st & 2nd 2016)
As the research and practice are ongoing they may be updated or replaced, but the principle of representing architecture as temporal, dynamic, multi-layered spaces is common to all images. The various techniques employed are inspired by cinema (e.g. Tati’s Playtime & Mon Oncle), subtraction of information, sequences of motion (e.g. every plane in 25 minutes over Stockport), architectural drawings (elevation, section and plan) and time of day/seasonal fixity. More case studies will follow e.g. drawing from collage techniques.
