Amberley Telephone Exchange

Where infrastructure meets the everyday mundane outside world. Where the infrastructure hits the poorly connected, the outer reaches of the network. Where the network connects for all to see. The shabby exchanges, leaning and broken green boxes, overheating fans, inactive. Stillness. No visitors.

To capture the essence of place, weather and time. Not just remote but rather day-to-day. Close to people but where there is still an untangling of nature. The edges of the domesticity of our surrounds but not garden. Signs of management, of upkeep but still the flourish of an unkempt natural world. Variation but at the same time repetition within that variation. Subtle, small, ground level.
