‘Super Space’ at Central House 20.08.20

AHMM’s Central House team has been working with the Visual Communication department at London Metropolitan University School of Art, Architecture and Design to develop proposals for the site hoarding. The project ‘Super Space’ invited students to take the site’s locality, its cultural history, social and commercial use and how the community connects with each of these aspects as the starting point for their design.

Following a series of workshops, which covered letterpress printing, photography, video editing, and screen printing, the students developed responses to the brief including a proposal for the hoarding and an animation. Three of these designs have been selected by the course tutors to be applied to the hoarding.

Eleanor Beaumont’s design
celebrates the languages of local residents past and present, mixing cockney rhyming slang, Yiddish and Bengali using analogue printing techniques and collage. Amber O’Reilly’s work is envisaged as a message of positivity, ‘We are all London’, and Emilie Zea Henriksen’s bold photographic collages play with local anecdotes and connections with the neighbouring streets.

The students’ work will be installed in September.
