From the Bricks up was an exhibition show casing new works created from a 10 month residency at Kings Dyke Brickworks, Peterborough. This brickworks is the last functioning works in Peterborough where once the industry thrived. During my residency i looked at Kings Dyke's history and present and possible future specifically concentrating on the work's impact on the surrounding communities. I was particularly interested in the old high street and the inter works societies that no longer exist. Through out the works life time social structures have grown, changed and deceased and disbanded but the one constant element has always been the infrastructure of the brickworks and the pride of its workers.
