In 2020 Blue Crow Media commissioned Photolanguage to research Blue Crow’s first book, Brutalist Paris, building on research conducted for the Brutalist Map of Paris (2017). This is the first thoroughly researched, English language study of Parisian brutalist architecture. It constructs a unique photographic record of over 50 buildings across Paris (1955-1987). Across 7 thematic essays it brings a new interpretation of brutalism in the French context.
Listening to Place, Barbican. In February 2022 we extended our collaboration with sound artists Langham Research Centre for their contribution to the Barbican event Listening to Place, an international concert of experimental, site-based sound art, organised by the record label Non-Classical.
Photolanguage were commissioned by Blue Crow Media to produce a new Modern Map of London in 2021. The map lists over fifty examples of modernist architecture from across London.
At Iklectik, Lambeth (an independent performance space and research arts laboratory) we continued our collaboration with sound artist and composer Iain Chambers, developing a new image and text projection sequence to accompany a performance of Chamber’s 15 minute sonic score Concrete Paris.
