The city is home to many important aspects of our daily lives, it’s a place for us to live, to work, to shop and most importantly it’s a place for community and culture. The frequent navigation of a familiar space can sometimes lead us to become less aware of our surroundings, where elements of the city become overlooked or ignored. When immersed within the urban environment, I wander aimlessly without any predetermined destination in mind. .
City unknown reflects on the psychological effects of space, understanding how it makes us feel and behave within different areas of the city. By night, the city is transformed as it becomes depopulated. As the urban environment becomes devoid of human presence, the focus shifts to the traces left behind by the city’s inhabitants.
