Looking at archive footage related to housing (re)developments in and around Glasgow. I wanted to explore how people relate to the physical structures of their homes and built environments, and how the build environment could encourage or discourage a relation to the whole. The natural environmental/socio-psychological whole. Nowadays we appear to be separated from the whole, these brutalist new builds do not suggest a seamless relation with the infinite but an insulation and separation of the individual from any shared reality.
Structures help us find our place within the infinite. Without them we are lost, with them we are limited. Structures are a finite means of relating to the infinite.
