“The fragmentary and the elusive, the moments that are made aware. We stop to admire the beauty, but we raise our phones before we raise our eyes. I don’t think this has to be a bad thing. I took these on my phone. Some of…

The Illusion of Movement // Joe Wills

“I was interested in the idea of blurring formal boundaries that the poem in the film and the concept of adaptation suggest, so I tried to adopt a cinematic form that had something in common with lyric poetry.  That’s also why some of the film is shot on digital cameras and some as 35mm film stills. I also liked the idea of stillness in film, and Laura Mulvey’s theory about how stillness in cinema is a kind of death.”

The Age of Spectacle // Tom Ardron

The Age of Spectacle // Tom Ardron

These photographs are part of a coincidental collection Ardron accumulated during a period of fieldwork for his MPhil in Architecture. This set was taken outside the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, and show the lengths to which some people will contort themselves, or their family members, within a shot of the building. The assumed priority of photographic evidence over experiential memory of a space or building is an aspect of contemporary society Ardron finds fascinating, and taking the time to consciously step back to photograph people trying to get the “perfect” or “original” shot is always revealing particularly at the Sagrada Familia, where the interior experience is the acme of its architectural expression. 

 

TOM ARDRON is a fifth year MPhil in Architecture and Urban Design student at St Edmunds College, Cambridge. He uses his photography to augment the subjects of his architectural design thesis.

Avebury (UH60/SN8) // Harry Coday

Visualised in a looping split screen video, Avebury (UH60/SN8) juxtaposes modern and ancient histories into one circularity, punctuated only by the linear falling and rising of displacement raindrops.
