In documenting Canary Wharf I decided to take photographic images utilising my iPhone.
Due to a lack of space on my phone, I have been restricted to taking a limited amount of images. Since I will be spending reasonable amount of time within this environment, more photos will be captured, with the intent of creating a proposed outcome sometime in the near future.
A common theme becomes evident. The coexistence of between natural and man-made objects in order to create an environment that seems to a futuristic landscape. But while these architectural structures seem to create a distinct, futuristic/progressive atmosphere, it also gave a feeling of claustrophobia. This seemed very ironic, because an environment created to give a progressive impression of man’s progression, being surrounded nature i.e. lagoon/water and at certain points, plants which is representative of nature’s gift to man, which in turn represents progression and freedom exist side by side.
The intention is to return here at a future date to continue taking more photos, as well as more drawings.
