You Were Here!

You should all have a look at this little blog by Tina Richardson, based in Leeds, UK.

YOU WERE HERE!

“This is an ongoing project that takes place on the University of Leeds campus and was started in November 2010. I am taking photos of found objects… that could have conceivably been dropped accidentally.

These items may well be classified as rubbish at the point they hit the ground, but the objects that intrigue me are those that could have possibly been lost, and at that moment in time, could have been attributed some value by the owner.”

The project focuses on the idea of accidental loss of an object; objects which are then indexed, temporally and spatially. Kind of like a map of loss. There are some similarities between this project and one of the first projects I posted on this blog, titled MISSING

I was interested in the body as a found object, and I see similarities in the projects because we’ve both concentrated on the place of discovery then mapped, in one way or another, those places.

Just a quick post to highlight a great blog!

I was made aware thanks to my good pal Sarah Smizz.

We’re hatching a plan for city wide domination! Not really, but we are pulling together a great proposal for an exhibition that will *hopefully* be in Manchester. If not, probably Sheffield. We’re very excited!

But what the hell has this got to do with BLDGBLOG? Well, everyone is inspired by something. So, thanks BLDGBLOG – you’re an inspiration!
