In November 2006 I was artist in Residence on the Worlds End Estate, Chelsea and Kensington, London. I was on the estate for 6 weeks and as part of many attempts to get residents to reconsider their surroundings, The Library of Secrets established The Worlds End Estate Book Club. The Book Clubs book of the month was JG Ballards High Rise. At the end of my residency, book club members convened in the Chelsea Theatre for the
Book Club Debate! The debate was chaired by Helen Brown, Journalist and Broadcaster, residents discussed their understanding of the book in comparison to their own experience of High Rise Living.
Official Worlds End Estate Postcard, 2006. This was the winning photo of the Belle-Vue competition which invited residents to submit their best view from the estate, the winning photo was made in to a postcard which was distributed across the estate.
