The Constructed City

Alice Dixon, Talia Shipman, Lizzie Vickery, Daniel Garcia, Melanie Harrison, Neil Mills


According to a recent UN study, 2007 marks the first point in history that the world's urban population will outnumber the rural population. The physical and cultural migrations resulting from this shift are explored by a group of emerging photo- based artists in Constructed City. The artists have captured the new urban realities by employing digital manipulation, staging, and by fusing the photographic medium with collage, paint, and sculpture. Illuminated themes include; pollution, consumerism, identity and communication.
