Dominic Davis, ‘then and now, them and us’
The piece explores various dichotomies found in North Woolwich. I sorted the information into columns to reflect the tabloid style Joe Tilson was using as a critique on consumerism which aligns with my interest in subverting pop. Included also are oral history testimonies of North Woolwich by children taken as part of an oral history project titled ‘Ports of Call’ by Fundamental Architecture Inclusion with London East Research Institute. I used texts from Peter Ackroyd on Woolwich and an advertising snippet from one of the recent residental developments on the site.
