Hope is the Thing With FeathersAFC Wimbledon is a football club that rose from the ashes of its predecessor Wimbledon FC after the club was franchised and moved to Milton Keynes. Hope is the Thing With Feathers is an investigation into the determination and solidarity of the fans involved with the phoenix club and their relationship with the inhabited space. The title references the poem of the same name but poet Emily Richardson. It tells a story of resilience in times of uncertainty through the representation of a rare bird. The work documents the space in which the club has inhabited on its journey to where it is today, and the volunteers that donate time to their club.
