Twenty Thousand City

20K City – Tabitha Jussa

This work is an on going exploration into the state of housing and the redevelopment of areas within cities worldwide. The audience are asked to consider the fate of our environment, of our culture, the importance of retaining physical links with the past through the built environment and the implications of the removal of the known landscape.

Throughout my practice, the work continues to encompass themes of duration, succession, change and time, taking the medium of photography beyond its immediate boundaries, to create a new metaimage – a moment in time stretched beyond the real.

Each photograph consists of between 10-50 individual negative images, composited together digitally to create a newly constructed view of each place. The photographs are large scale, encouraging the viewer to macro and microscopically read each picture, a nod to the tradition of the painted tableau.
