One Spirit Showcase Photographic Diary documents the work of three former students who partook in a photography residency. The project was co-ordinated by Futurecity and sponsored by Hines, and the students had an opportunity to document the demolition and rebuilding of new offices at One Grafton Street. They were merely asked to look and more importantly to see. It was up to them how they responded. They each underwent safety instruction and were let loose, so to speak. The book documents their efforts.
Artists: Dzenana Hozic, Alana Lake, Kraig Wilson
