MEDIA ART EXHIBITION EXPLORING IDENTITY THROUGH THE CHANGING NATURE OF PEOPLES LIVING SPACES.
Domestic Archaeology was a cross-media art project created by The Light Surgeons that was exhibited at the Geffrye Museum in East London in 2006.
The work on show was developed through a process of audio-visual journalism that explores the issues surrounding identity through the study of Londoners and their rich mixture of living spaces.
The project excavated personal stories, memories, objects and meanings that were re-assembled as multimedia installations, offering a reflection on the changing condition of domestic space as well as our more psychological boundaries associated with them.
A complete documentation of all the film and artworks from this project has been created as a limited addition dual layer DVD, including a set of six postcards of artwork from the exhibition. It is currently available from Magma books, BFI shop or directly via lightsurgeons.com
