Place and its people are a central aspect of how my project Reconstructing Deptford started and how it has progressed. I have deliberately put place first because it was the primary consideration for me as I began. Now, I consider people to be the thing the holds a place like Deptford together, with the setting they find themselves in the backdrop. Regeneration of a place that is close to my heart is of interest to me. Showing the people within the diptychs to be similar in one way yet different in another backs up my assertion that people in the regenerated setting are an important part of Deptford too.
Following on from Showing Not Telling – Text and Image to Form Diegesis , I've been inspired to make 9 more poems for the remaining diptychs. In my opinion text has been used in a totally different way (relay as opposed to anchorage) to inform the images.
