Metropole documents the transformation of London at the hands of property developers and speculators. In it the glittering new luxury high rises of London are layered over each other using multiple exposures, creating a disorientating dystopian vision of the city.
Screen printing is a printing process where ink is forced through a fine mesh or screen and on to a piece of paper. A stencil on the mesh blocks ink from passing through at certain points, creating an image. The stencils are unique, so once the screen is ‘reclaimed’ and the stencil removed from it no more prints can be produced.
