A Forest of Signs (London) 2011
A Forest of Signs is a photographic project which explores the presence of street trees as part of a matrix of signs and objects in the urban environment - a forest of signs. The project is concerned with the presence of the arboreal as experienced from the perspective of the pedestrian - as part of the commonality of the urban everyday and a key figure in the construction of an urban imaginary through photography. The London version of A Forest of Signs assembles the images as an animated sequence which allows for porosity and transformation whilst a regularised urban rhythm of temporal succession draws attention to the state of absorption engendered by forms of mobility within the city, in which all changes yet all remains the same.
