Night in Barbican Estate and in Peckham and Night in Canary Wharf and in Tate Modern by Jessica Dunn

A photographic collage.

About this project:  "While living in London, I spent time considering how the architecture of place affects disposition and identity. These photographs attempt to capture the relatively stark architectural makeup that typifies much of the city. The photographs depict Barbican Estate, Peckham Levels Bold Tendencies (inset), Canary Wharf, and an interior stairwell of Tate Modern (inset)."

About the artist:  "Jessica lives and works in Naarm/Melbourne, on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri and Boon Wurrung people of the Kulin Nation. She is currently studying a Masters of Arts and Cultural Management, and is interested in community access and engagement with the visual arts, and the role of not-for-profit arts organisations in community development. Her creative practice primarily involves arts writing and photography, exploring ideas around psychogeography, memory, and temporality."

We asked, our artists answered: why does creativity matter now?  "The total disruption that Covid-19 has had upon everyone’s lives has seen the arts take on a renewed importance. The arts can help us make sense of our collective response to disaster, and can convey a community’s shared experiences despite physical and social separation."
