Work: 9 R.275 Modern House


This project features various depictions of a semi-detached house constructing an archive of found images, large format photographs, digitally constructed images, publications and audio work.

Utilitarian domestic housing from this period is an archetype of standardisation and suburban uniformity. The prosaic ordinariness of these houses belies the unique individual dramas that play out within.

Hornby Railways considered that this particular building in Margate epitomised life in towns and cities in the UK during the late 20th century and chose this house on which to base their 'R.275 Modern House' model kit.

Each work in the series is given a reference number forming a visual archive, a 'kit of parts' with which to describe contemporary suburban life.
