Dream Homes: an archive

Frenchay Hospital closed in May 2014.

The NHS trust sold the land to a housing developer.

470 houses are currently being built.

I have been photographing the hospital site since it closed, on regular walks with my daughter. Both have changed quickly yet imperceptibly. When the new houses are finished it will be hard to remember this in-between time, where diggers and rubble have formed the background to our daily lives.

Using images and material from the site, I will be creating an installation and exhibition of my own responses to this fleeting era at Frenchay museum this April.

Local residents and visitors to the museum are invited to contribute their own memories of this transitional phase to the collection. Watch this space…
