Unattended City was installed along three walls of the SCA Graduate Gallery, for the exhibition Dystopia, curated by Nicolas Tsoutas, June 2013.

The wall drawing was made from flyscreen mesh, rubber-backed fabric, plastic, spray-paint and tape. The large-scale collaging of images and forms from the run-down urban corners map out the economic tides and margins of the city. The impermanent taping and pinning and low-fi materiality speaks further to the economics of the production of space in the city. On the opposite wall a pack of wild dogs growl and fight amongst the future ruins, or even ruins in reverse.
