This, being the first work entered as pat of the DAR, is from a series of interviews around a council estate regeneration in Leeds. An area called Little London, that has been transformed by a Private Financed Initiative (PFI) rather than using local goverment funding. The work I create is responding to how this regeneration had impacted the inhabitants of Little London.

Digitally capturing, replicating and appropriating a juxtaposition of interview, non-verbal communication and classical music in the public domain. This short 3 minute film encompasses an interview with Nathan around the topic of council housing in Little London, what it is like to grow up there, with no words being said, only the classical music from centuries before distorting reality, topic and enabling digression and subjectivity. 
 

 As part of my ethnographic research into Little London and its recent regeneration, I approach my methodology by directly participating and working with inhabitants, tenants, workers and visitors of the area.  I also I sit back and soak in the environment, people watch and record my thoughts on what I see, hear and feel, often bringing memories from my own experience of living in the estate.  What I like most about my work here, is when the locals engage with me and we have a conversation about their life, experience and the impact of the regeneration has affected them.
