What exists is good
2017

In 'What exists is good', I wanted to question my understanding of contemporary architecture and the city through the closer study of a selection of materials found in and around my studio and home. These materials are reconsidered and related to a number of my childhood memories and experiences - in a way looking at the enduring material presence of my own memories, while at the same time trying to implicate myself into the more recent architectural history of the 1970s onward.

Duration 15 mins.
