Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV)
The SPV is a bike trailer which records audio, and video footage of the entirety of CGE, and served to open conversations with CGE residents about repairs in their homes. So I could film upper walkways from the lower level I attached a extensible pole that I found near a rubbish area on the estate.
The best time to film was at the weekends, which was when residents tended to be around. I created the trailer so I could look after my children while also filming − it provided an extra pair of hands. Importantly, my children and the novelty of the trailer provided an entry point into conversations with Cressingham residents. The trailer also provided an excuse to spend time in parts of the estate I was less familiar with.
More documentation coming soon….
