Lore of The Land

Duratran light boxes
Chelmsford Magistrates Court, Chelmsford. Completed January 2012

Lore of the Land is a series of large illusory photographic light boxes installed on the ground and first floors of Chelmsford’s new Magistrates Court. The illusions suggest a series of architectural inlets through into natural environments, which have been developed to work with the actual architecture. Our intention was to create an alternative view to the expected architecture of the Court buildings and its environs.

The project was developed in collaboration with the architects Aedas, the contractor Galliford Try, HMCS community and Chelmsford Borough Council.
