Silhouette Press and book-binder, Rosie Bolton, were engaged to expand the ongoing exhibtion, Living Quarters, showcasing passport photographs from the 70s and 80s, found and selected by artist Martin Green, and a series of buildings photographed by Adele Reed.
Using transcript recordings of visitor’s perceptions of Living Quarters, SP and Rosie produced cut-ups of these lines and arranged them into a hand-bound book that presents polaroid head shots of people passing through the POD alongside reflections on the exhibition.
The book attempts to provide a continuing narrative behind the pictures, juxtaposing the forms of windows and faces. The project directly involved people who came to the POD (models/writers/book-makers) in the creative process of producing the book as exhibition artefact, it can be viewed at the POD.
