︎︎︎ Design Impact for social justice
The history of London mirrowed in Elephant & Castle. The local character is getting transformed from a formerly multi-cultural neighboruhood to social-cleansing.
This exhibition is a statement against the gentrification of South East London. The green scaffolding is the cruel reality of the neighbourhood being transformed, reflecting on the gentrification process that the area is undergoing.
︎︎︎ Exhibition Design:
We built modular structures made out of scaffolding equipment, fabric and timber and hanged them from the ceiling. The semi-transparent dividers created small spaces for each research hub to display their work, and at the same time allowed the viewer to grasp an overview of the whole show:
︎︎︎ The language of gentrification reconstructed on a billboard, mostly found among the construction areas.
The translation of my research was built though a 2,5 x 3 m billboard that simulates the wood panels used to cover the construction sites in Elephant and Castle.
266 stickers composed a Southwark billboard, in response to the visual language of the gentrification of Elephant and Castle.
