Expressions of Abandonment: Exploring Abandonment as Visual Inspiration
In recent years, there has been an increased interest in the exploration and study of abandoned sites within the discipline of heritage studies. The very act of visiting abandoned spaces has become so widely recognised that there’s a global term for it — Urban exploration, or UrbEx for short. Expressions of Abandonment explores these abandoned spaces as a driving force to inspire designs.
The project aims to encourage interest and bring awareness towards local abandoned spaces by transforming how they can be perceived; particularly through the study and documentation of 6 visual elements — colour, architecture, textures, marks, typography and symbols.
