Building Heritage

Michelle Brown. Juried Artist
Bent Books

Artist Statement

The past, present and future are interconnected. Through nostalgia, imagination and storytelling we connect with each other, and with place. A place can trigger many emotions and this artwork seeks to provoke a reminiscence of past spaces and places that we hold in our memories.

With an interactive augmented reality experience, ‘Building Heritage’ will be exhibited in the windows of the iconic West End store, Bent Books.
