Work No 681; Unfinished Business at St.Martins

Work No 681; Unfinished Business
 c. Michael St.Mark, December 20th 2013

Temporary found Work.
Partially completed office block, Kings Cross

A commercial mid-build at the point of exhibiting a compelling visual appeal
comprising a partially clad reinforced concrete beam support structure with
few glass sealed units fitted, workers’ external cage stations and glimpses
of an interior concrete stairwell.
A construction crane was still in situ.
With its subtle color and grid line combinations, the building pictured at that
stage possessed a quite profound semi-abstract appeal.
A stone’s throw from Central St.Martins college of art, this interesting transient
construction phase outshone the self-important pompous pretension that
passes as art
within that cronyism / nepotism ( friends, friends of friends or family )
-infested institution.

  1. As you’ve shown here true ‘art’ is all around us if we care to open our eyes and really look.

    One would only imagine a building to be beautiful when finished, but partially built like this it’s very ‘urbanism’ is extremely appealing to me.

    Who gives a fig for what is churned out from art colleges where everyone is conforming to what their tutors say is art. Dare to be different I say! 🙂


    • It stuck out like a tattooed thumb in a psychedelic nail they don’t say, Mrs B.
      What exactly “goes on” inside St.Martins besides perpetual staff meetings about trivia and a bit of airy fairy faffing about by the strictly ( apart from the obligatory token ethnic or LWC wretch to PC-up their image ) family/friends-connected air heads, er students; is a mystery to all.
