What does it mean to produce a site-specific photographic project based around a contemporary health centre? Walking and photographing we explored the poetics of everyday life, investigated the relationship of place to memory, uncovered fragments of the former hospital’s history, documented processes of urban transformation and essayed personal responses to the space. The final artwork is these photographs that mirror photobooks created in editorial workshops during which we folded and sewed photographs into paper-based constellations. The images have been installed in the centre’s walls and printed in this publication.
