#135 The Courtyard in the Nature Reserve

B12_#135 // Rehearsing Realities // Emma Colthurst  The Courtyard, a niche of serenity carved out within urban sprawl is transported to the Nature Reserve. Here reality and imagination collide through the possibilities of the threshold. The transition of the bridge, the connecting arches, the open […]

#134 Ruined Concert

B12_#134 // Rehearsing Realities // Lloyd Lee A music concert can be considered an all-rounded experience.  The music, together with people and the atmosphere, creates an ambience that stimulates all our senses. The creation of such ambience heavily relies on concerts’ characteristics to share the experience […]

#133 Fields Forever

B12_#133 // Rehearsing Realities // Daana Bolot Today you find yourself commuting from suburban towns to cities to go to work, school or university. As months and years pass, you notice that those endless fields and crops get replaced by more suburban housing. Your view […]

#132 Midnight Atelier

B12_#132 // Rehearsing Realities // Ernst Schubert The rhythm the artist is working is twisted to our every day life.  When we are sleeping he is creating universes. When we are out of our beds he is sleeping.  By that he has his own relation to […]

B12_#130 // Rehearsing Realities // Bethany Hird This cube reimagines the traditional typology of home. In our modern era of technological prevalence, to learn, play and discover is more often than not conducted via computers and phones. This cube takes a step to the future, where […]

#129 Offline

B12_#129 // Rehearsing Realities // Natalie Roberts Here I begin exploring ideals of passivity. The virtual online shopping platform is realised in a 3 dimensional context. The everyday residential street acts as its own `real word`context whilst the metaphoric virtual reality submerges itself within the […]

#128 Rehearsing Realities

B12_#128 // Rehearsing Realities // Kirsty McMullan (Brief Author) The commute to and from work, for many of us, is the only time in our day when we have a little time to think. To check in on our goals and aspirations as we check […]

#127 Rehearsing Realities

B12_#127 // Rehearsing Realities // Luke Reveley  The 4x4x4 has been placed into the context of a generic commuter train. Thousands of workers are ferried back and forth every day. Sitting in antisocial silence and listening to the same old playlists over and over again. […]

#126 The Observatory

B12_#126 // Rehearsing Realities // Kimberley Berney & Samuel Jaccard Mankind has forgotten the art of rest.  We have lost the ability to stay with our thoughts, our feelings, with our true inner self. We are no longer our own company. Our homes that once kept […]

#125 Rehearsing Laws

B12_#125 // Rehearsing Realities // Jakob Walter “[Kings] have power to exalt low things, and abase high things, and make of their subjects like men at the Chesse; A pawne to take a Bishop of a Knight, and to cry up, or downe any of their subjects, […]
