The project is investigating constructed realities particularly focusing on the area of Dalston. Dalston has been undergoing drastic changes through the past years and people as well as the media are projecting on the area a skewed vision of reality and slowly comercialising the area. Psychogeography was used, to investigate the area, its colours and textures. The final outcome is an alatar which is an object of rememberance and worship. The altar is do-it yourself where the person in its posession can assemble it using the sets made. The set are created through a photographic exploration and the colours, patterns and shapes are extracted from imagery. Since the “original” Dalston is disapearing, thanks to this altar people can still cherish its past characteristics.
