Residential Chance

Edition of letterpress cards
10cm x 7cm


‘Residential Chance’ responds to the current housing issues in the UK.  Economic or political forces are often what cause people to move house, whether that be availability of work, affordability of property, taxes or land ownership.  This work takes the form of ‘Chance’ cards in the game Monopoly, a game which concerns buying and renting property, and uses familiar phrases to compare the game to these current day housing issues.

This work was supported by Arts Council Grants for the Arts, Halton Borough Council and Castlefield Gallery’s New Art Spaces. Thanks to Karen Edwards for the letterpress expertise.
