Danielle Hewitt is an artist and historian. Danielle’s work explores the resonance of past forms and materialities in the landscape; questioning how making these evident can offer opportunities to reconsider the ways in which certain histories are presented now, and how this might affect future thought and actions. This artistic-historiographical practice reflects critically on the nature of historical documents and evidence to communicate complex and contested histories through visual and poetic methods.

 

The body of ongoing research shown here examines the material flows of debris from London’s WWII bombsites and follows the material, political, and cultural networks that they lead to. This practice-based research forms part of a PhD in Architectural History, currently being completed at the Bartlett School of Architecture and funded by the Society of Architectural Historians of Great Britain.
