The installation comprised 8 architectural models on tables of 100 x 100 x 100cm, with each table lit by a single work light with a daylight LED bulb. The entrance into the space was through a structure based on official buildings, and drawing on the previous project Embassy.
The Embassy of Doggerland was a metaphor for the fragility of settlement, for the point where humanity went from hunter/gatherers to settled farmers, a symbol for contemporary capitalism and the resulting heating world.
The models are of concrete buildings that exist between military infrastructure and industrial ruin, structures designed with a purpose that is no longer discernible. The architecture reflects memories of edge-lands; in the UK around the River Mersey towards the industrial centre of Widnes; and in Taiwan the coast around Taoyuan Airport. These sites are unfixed in time, seemingly as if ghosts from a future catastrophe.
Dimensions are for each model/table
