Mike Dring

As an architect, artist, lecturer and researcher, Michael Dring is interested in recording physical civic and infrastructural spaces, and in capturing the ephemeral, often fragmentary experiences of extant, threatened or lost spaces of the city. His audio-visual work offers a critique of the modernist iconoclasm – the destruction of the ideas, the image and form of the post-war city for political motives – through the union of experimental processes in photogrammetry, archival interpretation, mapping, film making, and soundtracking, in doing so offering insights into the value of past ideals to give the present greater depth of meaning. Michael’s work with the Birmingham Modernist Society also seeks to redress the balance in the ongoing changes to the city, through events and publications.
