"The internal weathering of the Glasgow School of Art by its inhabitants enhances the atmosphere of the spaces within. We feel connected to architecture that shows us its vulnerabilities - stains, cracks and ageing; for it is mortal like us. This dissertation records traces of human inhabitation that have accumulated over the past 100 years now held within the Art School (prior to renovation), using the medium of still photography. This is complemented by theories which interweave time wth the patina of human use to a surface, thus forming a visual history and memory."
