Framing Space

My research looks at how people engage with ‘heritage sites’ and the ways in which their practices and performances intertwine with the places themselves. As a result I was intrigued by these open picture frames at Alnwick Castle. They interpret the Lancelot ‘Capability’ Brown landscape around the castle for the visitor and implicit in them as structures is the idea that this landscape is a work of art. What it also does though, is to encourage the visitor to take photos through the frames of the views selected by the Castle team, allowing the interpretation panels to quite literally ‘frame’ the view that a person selects to take home with them.
