|Social Advent no.9 - at low tide|
Our investigations into finding interesting and relevant places to site our artists Social Advents became increasingly engaging. We also found that these explorations presented us with more and more diversity as our placements began to echo some of the underlying purposes for this project, which is to utilise the spaces around us, just as the dwellers of the original cardboard city had to.

The idea of this flat packed society creates a double edged paradox for me, leaving me thinking of a practical realism that we are living in a world of ever decreasing natural space, which leaves us looking more intensely at the more confined spaces in between. The flip side, excuse the pun, is that this could be viewed as a representation of our ability to think creatively when living within a utilitarian society.
|opening the doors on Advent no.9|
We've already opened our doors to a great range of artworks already and the diversity with which each artist has interpreted the brief is really exciting. Not yet a third of the way through our releases so lots to look forward to in the Cardboard City stocking!
Back tomorrow with no.10 and artist Alban Low releasing!
