David McDiarmid


The old Leith Theatre


Invited Artist

David McDiarmid‘s practice seeks to examine the concept of megalomania in architecture; the means by which the built environment is often purposefully designed, constructed and used as a tool for power and propaganda.

For Hidden Door, I’m looking to revisit an older work titled Projection which has been an ongoing project since my Degree Show at Gray’s School of Art back in 2013. Projection at Hidden Door will attempt to project a miniature-scale hand-made model of a scaffolding structure, mounted on to a slide and inserted into an old school slide projector, in as near to full-scale as possible!
