Sam Eden

Sam Eden’s work is heavily influenced by the surrounding cityscapes and their constant change, decay and redevelopment. His ongoing obsession with the urban environment results in a subconscious taking in of the shapes and forms of man-made structures. His work aims to combine fine art and architecture, particularly Brutalism. He creates his own city-like models made from various industrial materials built on top of existing subway maps engraved into the foundations of their bases. The models are photographed throughout resulting in collages from which prints are made. Aiming for a grainy, almost surveillance-like quality to the images.
