Welcome to Yardworks

For my MA Fine Art – Site & Archive at UCLAN in Preston, I have been focusing on a site specific project which has led me on a journey of uncovering the past, recognising the present and developing the future possibilities of this empty, light industry wasteground. Once, it was the Yardworks, Horrockses & Sons model site of empirical prosperity, a world unto itself inside the high brick wall encompassing the site. Now, all that is left are a few sections of brick walls, maps and a fabulous model of the site at the Harris museum & art gallery. This blog will document and display artworks and interventions inspired by the site in my final year. Aswell as posting information and images, there will opportunities to comment and feedback during the process.
