Creative Edge

Creative Edge

“London’s outer suburbs have stereotypically been portrayed and understood as safe, boring and an anathema to inspiration, especially against more dynamic, spectacular and multilayered central districts. Yet, London’s suburbia has proved a fertile and innovative seedbed for creativity, particularly in contrast to an increasingly gentrified, generic and bland historic centre. From the literature of Hanif Kureishi, JG Ballard and Zadie Smith to the musical adventures of Siouxsie Sioux, Suburban Base records and Burial, the suburbs have become central to cultural representations and imaginations of contemporary London.”

I will be presenting a video piece titled Sonic Life Cycles: The Psycho-Geography of Genres made especially for the workshop with John Eden from www.uncarved.org. Other speakers include Martin “Blackdown” Clark and Photographer Nico Hogg.
