SHOW ROOM | APARTMENT 01

 

 

 

Show Room | Apartment 01 is an installation work by Felicity Hammond, which saw the Black Box, Farnham has been transformed into a sales suite for luxury housing. The ‘pop up’ nature of this space is akin to that of the shipping containers found within the urban landscape, objects whose original function is now obsolete. Using the rendered architectural proposition as an access point, the sales suite points at the potential ruination of the urban landscape, where blue tinged remnants of the material language of regeneration fill the space. By the nature of their incompleteness, their careless unconstrained proportions and warped pixels, these images point to the planned obsolescence which is inherent within the capitalist narrative. The buildings to which these visions point are not made to last, and this is affirmed in the production method of the images that imagine them. The future for these buildings has been cancelled.
