We humans are social beings. It is obvious this last decade has been the most de-humanising one in our entire history. We have become attached to our screens, we are used as lab rats by corporations and now we have criminalised visiting loved ones and hugging them due to Covid-19. If we follow this path, we are going to strip society and ourselves of what makes us human. I believe The Back-Bone Project is a step in the right direction. It contains several different anti-social decontamination methods. They range from making the use of phones less than practical (Canopy), to creating bonds between customer and company (Barter), creating a sense of community (Retail) and allowing our connections to grow and deepen (Rest). I believe in a future together and so should you.

My site is an old railway station which houses nearly 50 different arches which is now simply used as a dumping ground for materials, and equipment used to maintain the railway lines. My chosen site as it is so special, not only because of its location or history or character, or shapes or colours but mainly because it is one of few sites where you can actually feel your surroundings without touching them. The active railway tracks above and next to my site create vibrations and sounds that not only create an out-worldly atmosphere but also make you feel part of something bigger.


My inspiration comes straight from the site and the extensive use of arches as retail spaces.
