Spaces buildings make.

Kearney, Andrew (2006) Spaces buildings make. [Show/Exhibition]


Spaces Buildings Make is an installation research project which takes as its medium the site of the Phase Two Building on the Cat Hill Campus of Middlesex University (Archs: Howell, Killick and Partridge, 1974) – plus the logistic information held in the archives of the architects held by Middlesex University. It was made possible by a AHRC Fellowship in the Creative and Performing Arts.

Selected details about the building's fabrication and design were printed in the Ceramics Studios onto glazed dinnerware of the same design and style currently used in the university refectory. These dishes were randomly entered into the regular refectory stock and used by staff and students. Video and photography were used to document this performative research process as it developed over a period of three months. In turn these video and photographic texts were made available (online) to other researchers as part of the developing Spaces Buildings Make archive.

This project was constituted in a series of installations and publications, plus a conference held at the Tate Modern Gallery, London in February 2007. The conference section was develped with Anthony Keindl and Aoife Mac Namara.

In the way that this piece explores archives and transient conceptions of architectural place, this work is in keeping with other earlier pieces (eg. Peter's Smoking Room). Documentary materials will be available on the department's website;
