The Elephant & Castle Convergence
January 30, 2011 § 1 Comment
A bitterly cold Sunday the 6th of February 2011
An idea to be followed in spirit; in part; in imagination; memorably; in memory of; materially; matter (of factly).
Consider the Elephant & Castle as the centre of a universe.
Approach it from a distant point of choice … the Oval, New Cross Gate, Waterloo, London Bridge, Southwark, Tower Bridge, Camberwell Green.
Record the quality of your anticipation.
Arrive at 11.00 in front of Elephant & Castle tube [Northern Line] where we will hold a brief symposium on the character of our experience of the morning, our preferences, our priorities.
Maps & directions of varying sizes & worth, accompanied by opinions & tips, will then be distributed.
Individually or mob-handed we will assault the neighbourhood whilst discarding all preconceptions & heretofore practices of photographing urban materiality & emerge with work matching the ethereal quality of the first Pet Shop Boys single or the obsessive complexity of John Coltrane’s last solo.
Later that same day … if we’re still standing we can meet up & plot a future for ourselves.
