WATCH THIS SPACE
Watch This Space is a four part photographic installation that examines the affect of population increases in and around Abbotsford. The work places imagery of ubiquitous apartment blocks into and around the exterior of c3.
Watch This Space generates the illusion of apartment blocks emerging from the Convent, echoing the recent bid to convert certain areas of the convent into apartments and residential zones.
The work aims to create a conversation about how Melbourne will change during the rapid population increase expected over the next thirty years. As the city’s communities grow and change, so too will the buildings in which Melbournians live. Will heritage spaces like the Convent have to shift and adapt as a result?
