The Labours of the Months in Robin Hood Gardens (Ferencz, 2017)

The animations are a selection from a longer sequence, depicting in a monthly rhythm, through the course of a year, the everyday activities at the East London housing estate Robin Hood Gardens (1972). Taking inspiration from the Calendarium pages of the late medieval breviary The Book of Hours, the animations explore the different temporalities of the estate (the lived, the historical and the cosmic) as it undergoes demolition as part of a wider local regeneration scheme. My monthly collection of events at the site are narrated through my interpretation of site-writing (Rendell, 2010), using text, drawings and montages.
