I am drawn to buildings undergoing change and I am very interested in graffiti. Its dilapidation sparks a lot of curiosity and interest with me, what changed to prompt this and the changing façade with graffiti make it a very curious building I always like to drive past.
I like looking at graffiti as a social critique, when buildings are neglected then it is identified quickly and graffiti starts to build. Equally bad design often attracts a lot of graffiti, if buildings are built with blank facades which don’t engage then graffiti starts to collect there very quickly. Likewise when buildings have served their purpose and fall into disuse it is reclaimed by society with graffiti and vandalism.
