Re-arranging Place

Re-arranging place explores the complex interrelationship between space and place. Through a process of destabilisation and re-arrangement it critically examines the current restoration of Villa Alba in Kew, a domestic interior turned museum in order to create a series of new sites and places. This project not only aims to introduce a greater connectivity between the viewer, site and content but also seeks to propel the idea of site into a sphere of possibility rather than one of control and predictability. Creating a shift in exchange between participant, content and context affects how the site is performed and perceived by the
participant/audience. This project proposes a new direction toward the treatment of and interaction with historical sites and structures through the destabilisation and re imagining of place.
