Part 1 Project 2016

This project explores what happens when we begin to treasure everyday items and records of ordinary people. The archive collects the objects and records of people who live in towns and villages along the Leeds - Liverpool canal. Its architecture bestows value upon collections of previously overlooked ‘everyday’ objects. It questions our existing attitudes to what we choose to commemorate.
