An Hour In London
Taught alongside Tobias Jewson
During the three weeks of the Architectural Association Summer School 2018, Unit 2 trawled social media. We foraged and hacked for narrative fragments dispersed through the ether. Focusing on a single place (Trafalgar Square) and a single hour (2–3 PM, 4 July 2018) we created a snapshot.
By freezing a snapshot of the feed in the form of a stained glass window — the classical medium of enduring stories — we revealed a narrative which lies between the fragments. A story of a space that seems to fluctuate between the actual, the digital and back again.
