The Owl is not what it seems







Made from scrap metal with spanners for legs and welded to the top of a pole, this owl is constructed from rusting steel found on wasteland and welded in to position to keep an eye out at night when I was living on the site. This photograph captures the very last time I saw him. I left shortly after taking this shot and sadly never returned to see the owl again.

A psychogeographic drift through a ruined city’… I came across these TVs on a street corner in Stoke Newington and added my touch to them. Laura Oldfield-Ford found them sometime later and took a photograph for her excellent zine Savage Messiah.
A photograph of these can also be found in her book Savage Messiah ‘a psychogeographic drift through a ruined city’ published by Verso Books.
