MEDIUM: photogrammetry,  
narrative/ documentary context,
installation and book art.
YEAR: 2021

This project documents the interior of msdm project space through a cross-section of representational approaches including photogrammetry, narrative/ documentary context and book art.
The 3-d models of msdm space offer a reading experience of the building’s interior, both as artist’s studio
and space of contemporary archaeology. 
From military offices (early 20th century) to community events space (2000s), traces of these former uses are still encoded in its interiors.
Additional archaeological context is provided by juxtaposition
with photogrammetry models from  Champion’s Grotto and Brabazon Hangars, two sites of Bristol’s industrial archaeology documented by the same team.
The title STUDIO/ ARCHAEOLOGY places the reading experience in the context of  archaeology of contemporary past, asks what is the studio for contemporary photographic publishing artistic practice,  and where are the boundaries of spatial representation,
as each space “bleeds" in one single archaeological site.

Spatial imagination, free-hand and digital drawing, model making and diagramming, modelling techniques, theoretical position, are a particular focus, this year, to focus upon the human occupation of space, the loss of social space correlating with the global pandemic of covid-19, as well as the corresponding overlaps between domestic and institutional or public frameworks.

The work is to  consider an explicit and embedded social and material sustainability:

Is physical intervention needed? How is it needed?
How can we contribute to emerging alternatives to the paradigm of increasing economic growth towards human and environmental wellbeing? What kind of spaces will we  inhabit when cultivation rather than extraction is the goal?  We challenge the discipline of architecture from within to reframe and remake our way of being in the world, to consider Interior Architecture as a collective ritual.

The studio considers the exploration of the notion of architectural narrative, and the use of design to convey an idea or a theoretical position and the integration of historical, theoretical and cultural references within a design proposal for: The body, activity and space, the [tc9] possibilities of interior architecture and its spatial, poetic and political implications and[tc10]  spatial creativity and response.
