Stephen Willats is interested in the ways in which people construct their world in relation to the social or physical constraints that are put upon them. In this work, Stephen Willats explores the realities of living in a tower block, investigating how buildings can stand as symbols for our culture. Over six months Willats photographed and interviewed Mrs Moran, an elderly lady who was living alone in the tower block. By giving the viewer an insight into the isolation of living in a tower block, the artist hopes they will look at and understand their own cultural situation.
