Do you know what your neighbourhood looked like 100 years ago, and can you envisage your neighbourhood in 100 years from now? Those are the questions an upcoming documentary, Now & Then, is asking. Made by local filmmaker, Ursula Williams, the film takes looks at artist John Radford & his alter ego Ron, who together are making and selling 256 highly detailed miniature replicas of early 1900’s suburban bay villas for a major sculptural installation and participatory performance, Graft. Fixated on the destruction of inner city domestic architecture, the work comprises two hillside precincts from his imagined suburban oblivion. Williams joins Ximena in the studio to tell her more about Radford's work & and about how her film will examine it.
