Out from the Ordinary 

‘Out from the Ordinary’ focuses on the use of found objects and the narrative surrounding such items in relation to location. Through observing the objects and re-positioning them in the found location Woolley created an unconventional portrait of the city of Coventry in which she was studying. The colours and materials used combined with the function and positioning of the objects are a representation of the identity of the city. The temporary structures created represent the temporary nature of the ‘ordinary objects’, however the new use of the items give a different meaning to the objects with the ability to speak about the city in which they were found and representing something more than purely 'rubbish'.
