|dc.description.abstract||This output represents Allen's contribution to the Bradford Grid exhibition at Bradford Gallery 2 (30 July - 03 September 2006). Bradford Grid is a project sponsored by the Arts Council for England (ACE) and aims to find innovative ways of documenting photographically Bradford's rapidly changing urban landscape. The physical outputs here represent the catalogue for that exhibition and an early version of a book produced by the project. Allen's work is documented in both. All of the previous ouputs rest on the representation of space at different levels of granularity. At the very baseline it is only through the visual representation of space itself that informed judgements can be made about the representation of space, whether this is descriptive or performative in nature. Therefore, practice-based approaches to the representation of space - through photography and digital imaging ¿ are an integral and necessary aspect to this researcher¿s way of working and constitute a central part of his output. The exhibition work represented in this output is part of a significant archive documenting the visual and spatial aspects of the urban environment. This work, as a creative manifestation of the researcher¿s output, is by its very nature multimodal and is both a contribution to the analysis of urban space from a distinctly multimodal perspective; it is also a departure away from it. Whilst the visual analysis of urban space fits very neatly into the multimodal perspective it is also something of an innovation in terms of the use of digital technologies in recording an ever increasingly technologized urban landscape. The longitudinal nature of this work means that transformations in the urban environment can be recorded and analysed and ultimately fed into an approach to the built environment as a visual and multimodal text.||en|
