Vera is a multi-disciplinary project that recreates a fictional characterâ€™s material and sensorial world. Thirty-one photographs from a girl’s family were found a few years ago in a second hand shop in Brighton, these images have become the beginning of all of our narration. Vera is our muse.
Vera is an ongoing investigation of design, art, literature, creativity, memory, narrative and how we experience our life world. Each new chapter continues to expand Vera’s fictional and collaborative biography through a series of productive, collaborative and, perhaps, combative new potentialities.
