Afterimages by Madeleine Snowdon
Visually Snowdon’s work often utilises layering either digitally or through space, using materials such as acetate to create a shifting installation that changes throughout the day and through the seasons as the light changes.
The dynamic and often densely layered nature of the work attempts to express the ever shifting and evolving history of communities within a space.
ABOUT THE ARTIST
Madeleine Snowdon is a West Midlands based interdisciplinary artist working through a variety of mediums, including painting, digital media, photography and writing. Her work is interested in the memory of space, in local histories retold through architecture and traces found in urban environments. The Afterimage series was created to trace and document the transferral of the Arts community at Warwick from the old Humanities Building at the University of Warwick to the new Faculty of the Arts building, which opened this year. The work explores the idea of building site as gestational space and seeks to capture the memories held within the old Humanities building, which was one of the first to be built on the University of Warwick campus in the 1960s.
