PLYMOUTH COLLEGE OF ART

Tavistock Place, 

Plymouth, PL4 8AT

STEVE BANCROFT

Question: What does the growing prevalence of edge cities in the Southwest reveal about current political ideas and cultural attitudes? And how can a photographic led enquiry into these spaces be used to explore the possibility of embracing alternative mythologies?

 

Having spent much of his youth riding skateboards in shopping centre car parks, Steve Bancroft revisits these non-places with a camera and tripod to explore their significance in a time of political stagnation. Using a psycho-geographic approach, Edge City weaves together strands of enquiry into place, product and the complexity of everyday life to bring into question the strange logic that lies behind our current mode of organising society.
