Lesley Farrell

Allotment Architecture

A project documenting manmade structures and makeshift tools found on and around my allotment. Through the photographs I want to capture a sense of place, which to me has little to do with the actual produce grown there. It is the buildings, the tools, the carpet remnants, the plastic, the materials and structures that give a greater sense of the activity and nature of these, still largely male occupied, spaces and the people that use them.

Jim Brown

Cast and carved concrete forms based on Harlow's urban environment.

Playplax , a construction toy designed by Patrick Rylands in 1966, consists of transparent coloured squares of polystyrene which interlock.
