Lecture Theatre

‘All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances, And one man in his time plays many parts…’

 (As You Like It, Act II, Scene II)

Our experience of the places we inhabit is bound up with the performances we are acting out within them. The place too may be actor,  director, scriptwriter, or backdrop. I am researching the co-construction of tourist space in heritage sites; the physical and conceptual worlds tourists move within, and at the same time continually create. Through this year I will explore this relationship between places themselves and the performances enacted within them by presenting an image of where I am on a given day, captioned by what the place has become as a result of what I, and those around me, are doing.
