Trellis: No Smell, No Dirt, No Trouble (2019)

Current Project

Lucy has been commissioned by UCL to work with Efstathia Kostopoulou as part of Trellis.

Lucy Harrison and Efstathia Kostopoulou are investigating the past industrial history of the Park and exploring how this can be made more visible in the present. Using archive research and oral history interviews they are mapping the site and the history of the industries that were previously there, focussing on liquids (oil, paint, perfume, and syrups) and using the waterways as a navigation. They will investigate the materials and processes themselves as well as the memories of those who experienced them. Their collaboration will result in interventions on the site which will bring these industries back to the surface.

Linear Park: Plot Lines

Current Project

Linear Park: Plot Lines is a collaboration between Lucy Harrison and Matter Architecture, commissioned by Waltham Forest Council as part of Making Places with additional funding from the Mayor of London.
The project traces the boundary lines of houses that were formerly on the site, using lines of lavender, and creating spaces between the lines for wild flowers or opportunities for community planting.

Lightboxes and Lettering

Current Project

A major project focussing on the pre-digital era of printing in Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Waltham Forest and the experiences of people involved in the industry.

Sweet Harmony: Radio, Rave and Waltham Forest, 1989-94

Current Project

Rendezvous Projects is delighted to announce that we have received funding from The National Lottery Heritage Fund to undertake a project in London Borough of Waltham Forest to explore the history of music heritage and youth culture in the borough: that of the pirate radio and the rave scene during the years 1989-1994.

The project, entitled Sweet Harmony: Radio, Rave and Waltham Forest will focus on the period 1989-1994 and research takes place from April to October 2019. Involving the local community and volunteers, it will include oral history interviews from people who were involved in the scene, photographs, event flyers, video and audio from the time as well as contemporary photographs. It will result in a publication, public event and web archive; content will be accessioned by Vestry House Museum archives for future public access.
