traces - current research
Within my current research, I have been examining how the traces of colonial histories remain visible in public domains. I have become focused on a particular point in Kenya’s history, and Britain’s colonial involvement, and in examining the way this history has been captured but also hidden from view in public records.
Some of this research relied on the physical documents and ephemera that can be found within the National Archives. Some images are also taken from private family collections. More recently I have also been using Google Street View, as a means to journey to the urban streets of Kenya. This process is both a journey in space, but also in time, as it connects to my personal memories of living in Kenya aged 19.
