Maya Ramsay's blog

A unique process is used to lift off the top layer of surfaces from historically and politically significant sites and to re-present them.
These works capture the histories imbued in architectural surfaces, whilst referencing the idea of walls as witnesses and walls as weapons.
Maya frequently works with sites that have a historical relationship to armed conflict and that are due to be demolished or renovated- capturing histories that would otherwise be lost.
