A mixed media project exhibited in 2016 using video, audio and stills photography to gather together fragments of sensory experience to construct a portrait of a local common and build an immersive and intriguing portrait of outer London in 2016.
Ducketts Common is a green space in London directly behind Turnpike Lane tube. For locals and police alike it is known as a trouble spot – a magnet for drugs, inter-gang warfare, litter and other anti-social behaviour. Whilst gentrifying forces attempt to make it a place for families and middle class recreation, there is entrenched resistance from disenfranchised youth who see it as their territory. It is the epitome of London in 2016. Multiculturalism fractures into segregation. Class and wealth fight it out for supremacy and control.
