Collected house drawings produced to accompany an installation. 'Estate', the installation, is the realisation of one of these drawings. It consists of three hundred white plaster house forms packed tightly in a random fashion on to a large low platform. They are lit by blue spotlights which cast strong shadows and cause the sculpture to appear to change form as one walks around it. The shadows give the impression of being of more substance than the white houses.
"This book of collected house drawings has been made to commemorate an installation at Oldham Art Gallery : 7 September to 19 October 1991"--P. [4] of cover.
