Reclamation – 2023
‘Reclamation’ focuses on nature’s triumph as plants, trees, moss and mould regain spaces. The absence of human life is profoundly felt in industrial, institutional and often solitary environments.
At the heart of this series is a duality between architectural prowess and the fallacy that humankind has any permanent control over nature.
Soden laments capitalism’s insensitivity to its effect on abandoned people and places. We are offered a meditation on time, nature, industry and reclamation.
