Amy Boulton’s work takes the form of site-specific installations involving sculptural and digital components, often oscillating between the two in the same work. In public presentations, the choice of imagery tends to echo that of promotional material in a strategy of decoy: to grasp attention through the visual recognition of common marketing tropes, but then to pique curiosity with unfamiliar or unexpected content, destabilising what initially appears as objectively known. Her research is rooted in the everyday, lived experience of the city. Adopting the constructed environment as the starting point, she aims to highlight the multiplicity and instability of the narratives surrounding places, working with site as both physical and socio-geographic space: as a space of collective experience, memory, and of projected visions of the future.
