The Elastic Modulus

Photography installation

Guy Archard here exhibits a literal response to the future flattening of the St. Philips building. In using photographic processes, he takes three dimensional space and transforms it into a flat image, copying this many times so that details fade and break-up, mirroring the anticipated destruction of the photographed area. Elastic threads serve as linear guides, and refer to the rebuilding of the structure after collapse, representing the elastically deformed future space that the building will occupy.
