‘Many truths – Salford estate’
We have to see the environment around us to fully understand our place within it. The work is not attempting to dictate how we make sense of what we see but to encourage thought and conversation about it. This artwork focuses on a Salford estate on the border of where Manchester and Salford converge. Since the artwork was created in early 2019 this vista no longer exists. The area in the foreground is being redeveloped and the artist hopes to capture, track and document this same viewpoint of the changing landscape over the coming years. Ben is not looking to capture views that have not been seen before. Rather, he is aiming to think in a different way about something that has been seen many times before.
