A former civil engineer, artist/film-maker Amanda brings her technical expertise to an exploration of the materials, companies and individuals that make and maintain the roads we all use.
In the exhibition Formation Level Amanda uses short experimental documentary techniques to record the processes and hidden narratives of the materials and people that build and maintain our roads, including the manufacture of road sweepers.
The artist said:
“People at work have always preoccupied me. I am particularly moved by work that is repeated or undone and the effort of people whose work goes unnoticed. In my practice I am drawn to record their labour as I try to capture the frailty and resilience of human endeavour”.
