Lansbury Estate

A collaboratively-produced audio-visual artwork, created with residents of the Lansbury Estate and traders from Chrisp Street Market. This project was produced in conjunction with the V&A Museum and City, University of London

The work reflects historic, current and future forms of architectural and social space that centre around the market and Lansbury Estate. It starts in 1951 - the year the estate was built as part of the Festival of Britain. Both audio and visual works take us from this departure point, through the present, to visions of the future. The piece alludes to the industrial history and forward-thinking architecture of the area, the presence of various cultural identities through time, the currently changing make-up of the market and its survival as the future looms large.

Key locals who helped design and paint the wall, and record, edit and compose the sound piece include: Christopher, Bo, Natalia, Natasha, Sheena, Charlotte, Daisy, Camille, Tim, Lorraine, Shahid, Gary, Olivia and last but by no means least, Evelyn, our next door neighbour (Evelyn's Cards) who even got her own personalised sign as part of the art work.
