Karen Crosby's 'Brick Lane Traces' project, is a series of old photographs depicting Brick Lane street life. These images will be projected onto the surfaces of their present day location, where the photos were originally taken up to 100 years ago.
Thus parts of the history and community life will be visually simulated, momentarily recreated. The projections will be visible to street traffic, neighborhood residents, and passersby.
The atmospheric images serve as a connection between the past and present, revealing traces of people, from the past as ghostly figures in doorways, alleyways and walls.
