Where the Wild Things Are - Scene 28

Watercolour and digital collage on paper

40 x 50 cm


'Where The Wild Things Are' imagines a new safari park, wilderness and leisure strip as essential social infrastructure linking Deptford in south-east London to Canary Wharf in the Docklands. The strip is a linear void in the city a mnemonic of the global and natural world around us a filter through which to see the city in a new light.

Cutting through some of the most opulent and deprived parts of London, the project juxtaposes the sublime and the ridiculous, creating a surrealist, new non-hierarchical territory a synthetic natural oasis where the strangest thing is the quotidian outside world.
