London is Changing

London is Changing website voices the struggles of Londoners

 

The Steeple Times regularly reports on London’s top-heavy property market and with seemingly ordinary houses now regularly fetching upwards of £10 million, the needs of ordinary people are slipping through the net. A provocative new project by Rebecca Ross, a communication design lecturer at Central Saint Martins, seeks to address this.

 

London is Changing
What creativity can there be when only money can buy your next opportunity?

London is Changing
There is so much I love about London and I still feel the excitement of the city but is beoming increasingly polarised.

London is Changing
There have been many positives about moving however London is ‘home’ and I am no longer home.

London is Changing
London has become so unaffordable that I cannot afford to enjoy the benefits anymore. I am less well off than when I was a student here 10 years ago.

 

In her ‘London is Changing’ project, Ross invites those who are moving or have recently moved both into and away from London to share their insights as to why they are migrating via an anonymous web form. Selected responses are currently on display on digital billboards in Central London.

 

The comments left by respondents are well worth considering. The most telling reads:

 

“London has become so unaffordable that I cannot afford to enjoy the benefits anymore. I am less well off than when I was a student here 10 years ago”.

  1. Much Matthew here today…………

    ‘ The poor are always with us ‘

    Depending whether you read the Deuteronomy or Matthew version, and what interpretations you place thereon……….by what right does Rebecca Ross imagine that they are entitled to a house a car, a career and a future in this tough capital of ours?

    My father gave me great advice as a child….Martin life isn’t fair, and you will find ( Matthew 13:12)…. ‘ For whom that hath, to him shall be given and he will have abundance; but from him that hath not it shall be taken away; even that he hath ‘….oh, and the pound in your pocket is your best friend
