Selected Projects, Time, Place

Colin Priest is a London-based practitioner and academic. He is currently Course Leader for BA (Hons) Interior and Spatial Design at Chelsea College of Arts, University of the Arts, London and co-founder of Live Projects Network. Graduating from the Architectural Association, London in 2003, this website has become a place to record commissions, collaborations and actions. Site-specific works incorporate installation, writing, film, performance and archival material associated with socio-spatial production. Assembling found and made artefacts, media and narratives; public encounters gently rub fragments of time and architecture, manifesting as ephemeral actions: conversation, intervention, publication and gathering. Practice evolves around lively research and the continual negotiation of landscapes on a site-by-site basis. Research and collaboration seeks to underscore a sense of place, the cultural value of change and shared relationships toward built heritage.
