'Utopia' is a sculptural installation incorporating video projection. A now demolished block of flats (Wood Dene in Peckham) was re-constructed with transient material (graph paper and paper clips) into an uncertain and fragile structure, as a utopian dream. The objects immateriality underlines the precariousness of the housing estate, as menacing real-life footage of its destruction is projected back into the space. The video 'Demolition' was shot over a duration of 4 months and records the gradual demolition of the site, in an edited version.
