Far beyond the bricks of our built environments, that are often seen to define us, it is the mental construct of community that matters most. In this sense, notions of community, of belonging and of course, of otherness, are not monolithically fixed constructs. They are all fluid and intangible ones, drawn and experienced upon the unseen and hidden landscape of our emotions and the ability of our minds to make these feelings real. This then is a work that explores the connection between the imaginative geography of landscape and the young lives in Handsworth who feel trapped between dreams and a city which is not theirs.
