Abstract

Taking Blue Town High Street as the starting point of a visual exploration of the past, present and future of everyday life on the Isle of Sheppey, as part of the Living and Working on Sheppey project, the artists, Tea, worked with younger and older project participants to record memories and imaginations of the past and future of Blue Town High Street. From this, they produced a visual and aural montage of a journey along the High Street. The composition and form of Back and Forth on High Street Blue Town is both a new formulation of data emerging from the project, and a vehicle for inter-generational dialogue about place and regeneration. The construction of the visual document combining memory and imagination with existing architecture undermines the veracity of documentary and questions any easy definition of heritage and its ownership.
