1. the future of development is reflected by the tate modern in the hoarding of battersea power station. The pedestrian is immersed in the illusion via reflection.
2. the city of tourist icons becomes continuous via the mirrored hoarding of a ruin in reverse.
3. The horizontal as well as vertical hoarding is mirrored reflecting both the barbican and the partially constructed shard reaching ever closer towards the sky.
What would it mean to use construction hoarding as the canvas in a similar way as Smithson? Would the neat boundaries of developed versus the undeveloped or “developing” become confused and essentially dissapear? Reflection acts as a tool to both create and erase urban ruins or ruins in reverse. photocollages and possibly a physical model to follow.
