LaughLand (2019) is an interactive digital installation that tries to create a memory capsule of a place that is doomed to be demolished. Situated at the Elephant and Castle shopping centre’s heart in South London, LaughLand is a people’s place, and the documentation of this unique site creates a living archive for the many stories, objects and soundscapes that assemble it. Through exploration of the virtual space, discussion about the objects in the shop, the story of the place re-emerged. The work establishes a digital reconnection to a site that is no longer exists, but the viewer will still be able to connect to the already disconnected.
