Inside Victoria Baths Exhibition I was fascinated with the tiles. Apart from its aesthetic qualities, these tiles constantly adapt to the space throughout its life span from all different types of interactions. Even through restoration look closely at the tiles and one will see variations of unique marks to form there own signature identity. With the intention of using the Victoria Baths environment as the testing ground to investigate the tiles, I had to change direction. Instead the Covid -19 isolation led to my flat as the testing ground for research. Taping tile-shaped paper to surfaces including kitchen worktop near the kettle, bathroom and on the kitchen floor to capture to everyday activity.
It’s a way of researching and exploring the idea that the tiles in the Victoria Baths will each have their own story to tell and become unique by the fact of being old and used, evidenced by cracking, chipping and a century of wear and tear.
