Edgy Centres video
From January to April this year Artsadmin ran a project with Leyton Sixth Form College and artist Chloe Cooper called Edgy Centres: Experiments in Space. Together we spent four months working out how students of Leyton Sixth Form affect the space they use, taking a new thoroughfare known as “the Street” as the starting point.
Through a series of performative experiments the group questioned the role space plays within our physical and emotional lives and how it can be altered through non-structural changes we make.
The project also responded to the debate around new “no frills” spaces for learning between the Education Secretary Michael Gove and the design community.
