Maryhill People's Group & Community Hall
The 'Maryhill People's Group and Community Hall' project explores the breakdown of community and 'collective consciousness'. In the broadest sense I wanted to equate the metaphorical notion of social hypnosis to the human need for a belief system and our unconscious desire to be controlled. Creating my own interpretation of this isolation and secularization of society has resulted perhaps in an unsettling confusion of reality. Setting the images in community halls seemed poignant to the concept behind my idea and the act of bringing disparate people together to form a fake 'collective' has provoked further avenues of sociological discourse.
