James Wells

Utopian RealitiesIn this project, James combines traditional photographic film processes with digital post production to create thought-provoking abstract works that are designed to answer questions around the aesthetic, ergonomic and social form of the city. Using Plymouth's Civic Centre as a focal point, the work excavates the utopian aspirations of modernism from their dystopian appearance. The work's dual aim is to explore the history of the built environment while asking a question about the potential for reviving the utopian imagination from the archive of modernist forms that continue to shape urban experience. The speculative architectural imagery that James 'builds' points to the functionality of 'nowhere'; an idea that persists in the utopian traces that can be found in the real world.
