Setting Out 5, Broomfield Street, E14 transposes what is conventionally horizontal, to the vertical plane of a wall. String used in the construction industry to transfer architectural drawings onto the ground, forms a line drawing referencing a floor plan of a dwelling. Setting out 5 refers to a home in Broomfield Street E14, close to Tallentire’s studio and continues to explore her interest in social housing architecture. The lengths of string comprising the work correspond to the circumference of each room, whilst paper markers denote the architectural elements of these spaces.
