This project looks at the urban life of a local High Street that is becoming a non-place, vacant of human presence on a day when shopping has become the norm, and no longer is Sunday a 'day of rest'. Viewing the High Street from the outside stirs an interest to want to seek further, but until you reach the heart of the shopping area it may not be what it used to be. But what draws the shopper in, is it the shop display or the brand name? By a form of Palimpsest, the front of the shop changes identity, with shop signage being removed and replaced by another while the exterior remains the same, never altered. The bland exterior hides the identity of the front.
