Selective Nostalgia

This image used in the previous film explores the idea that, on the one hand we cherish the authentic and character-rich relics of the past, but on the other we are able to unsee the disappearance of historical and culturally rich places within our cities.

This is evident in the Banglatown-Spitalfields site: there is a clear fabrication of an authentic historical character together with a trend towards the worn antique and simultaneously there is a clear annihilation of the character of valuable historical areas.
