''Feral Houses'', James Griffioen

Feral Houses by James Griffioen is an interesting project where he drew inspiration from living in Detroit and photographed some of the thousands of abandoned houses, almost in a feral state in the summer with nature reclaiming the buildings. The narrative is within the questions the decaying nature of the houses ask you as a viewer, why was the house abandoned like that, who lived there? The narrative is within what is not there, and this is an idea I want to explore in my project. The way it looks at the co-existence of the natural world and man made something I may explore as well. As my project  looks like heading down the route of a journey like narrative with sound contrasting the landscape but I may slowly have more evidence of civilization after the initial narrative is an escape from a busy environment, as it slowly comes back to guildford from the North Downs Way.
