Unit 2: Dominion 1

In Semester 1, 2010, Unit 2 studied Dominion Rd to attempt to disclose the multi-layered and interwoven nature of the city. Far from being simply a collection of buildings, the city is revealed to be comprised of people, practices, events, infrastructures, ecologies, constructions, images, and narratives. In these images Sha Li and Tuo Shen document the groupings and species of plants on a 3km stretch of Dominion Rd; and explore the proximate textural qualities that these give the site.
