New Town website
July 1 2006Can a town be transformed into a web portal? Canadian artist, Sylvia Grace Borda, spent over a year addressing this very question. Her response is a new ‘media portal’, complete with interactive map of East Kilbride (http://eknewtown.com).
The artist has photographed every modernist structure in East Kilbride as an ode to the utopian ideas embodied in its design. Borda was fascinated by looking at East Kilbride's New Town plan (started in 1947) in relation to the city's current fate in 2006.
