Helen Stratford

The Life Room has been created by the artist Helen Stratford.
What do you do everyday? Every week? Every month? How do you organise your daily life? Is it productive? The walls have giant flowcharts that Blackpool residents created to depict their daily routines … and you are invited to make diagrams of the day-to-day challenges and routines experienced in the spaces of your own daily life.

Our 5 person family/friends dorm has 3 single bunk beds (very comfortable) and a double, its own good sized en-suite bathroom in a zingy colour with a superb shower and shiny German and Swedish fittings, a Smart TV that can mirror your own screens.

biography

Stratford is a socially engaged artist with a background in architecture. She uses workshops, site-specific interventions and video-works among other techniques. Her work questions and expands what we think of as ‘conventional architecture’, and challenges how the urban and rural spaces designed by city planners, authorities and architects can be changed through informal occupations or actions. One of her projects involved spending a day with a duck.

She is undertaking a part-time practice-led PhD in Performative Architectures at the University of Sheffield.
