There goes the hood - developers follow the indie music

There goes the hood - developers follow the indie music

A project exploring issues related to gentrification, based on my summer living in Brooklyn, New York. I feel acutely aware of the changes happening in these urban environments - Shoreditch, Williamsburg, and am conscious that I am part of a generation of young artists who have lived and worked in these areas, contributing to the changes. 'We heard this is where the party is - developers follow the indie music' tries to convey the rowdy chaotic fun that attracts developers, and is part of the bigger process of re-urbanisation.
