Pictures Not Homes

Minkin, Louisa and Dawson, Ian and Summers, Francis (2017) Pictures Not Homes. In: Geographies of inequalities Nordic Geographers Meeting, 18-21 June 2017, Stockholm.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Minkin, Louisa and Dawson, Ian and Summers, Francis
Description:

Pictures not homes: posed as a question about dwelling. Walls as boundaries and divisive
markers, doors as that which can allow access but that can dictate stasis, windows as pictorial
‘seeing through’. Files without recto or verso.
We present the traces of remnants of houses and businesses from streets in the sky, from a
community that did not arrive as planned. Homes not pictures: the found words of occupiers
protesting the regeneration of the Aylesbury estate from which these picture-objects-files come.
RTI and 3D scans are used with archaeological methodology gone lumpen. An exploration of the
relation of lived-in space to the non-spatial format of the digital, a project addressing the
disappearance of place; the obdurateness of material; the liquidity of media and capital. Sandbags
and code. Flexibility and opacity.
Or.
A is for front line.
An alphabetical anomaly; we start with struggle, with a conflict between forms-of-life.
B is for backwardsness.
Also known as nachtraglichkeit.
A is for afterwardsness, then.
A retro-active understanding, a looping.
B is for belated understanding. Memory reprinted from later experience.
C is for concatenation, constituent, components, construction
class
