Item 6: Salford Samples JAR article

journal contribution
posted on 12.10.2020, 13:29 by Joanne Emma Scott
The Salford Samples is a practice-as-research project in intermedial place-making. Using materials that arise from the city of Salford, including fragments of its cultural history, an autobiographical audio diary, and images/footage of the place itself, a range of shifting combinations are created. Through the mixing of diverse materials, as part of live performances and in online 'video-texts', issues related to this fast-moving, redeveloping, and conversely traditional and static place, arise. Specifically, questions around 'solastalgia' or 'the distress that is produced by environmental change impacting on people while they are directly connected to their home environment’ (Albrecht et al. 2007, 95) emerge. In addition, these factors both foster and disrupt 'place-attachment' in a contemporary urban environment.
