Announcing projectVOX POWER zine editor Helen Cammock

Artist Helen Cammock kick-starts the theprojectVOX Zine series with a provocation on POWER, calling Camden Communities to share their response online and through creative workshops exploring visual image and text.

To respond to Helen's question: 'When one wall falls another appears - so where is my hammer - and who will help me build', you can take part in a projectVOX workshop, meet with projectVOX writer in residence and submit your own response for a chance to be featured in the projectVOX zine. 

Helen Cammock uses photography, video, poetry, writing, performance, printmaking and installation in her work. Cammock’s heavily researched, multi-media work, which embraces film, photography and print-making, addresses themes of social justice and ideas related to historical cycles.

“Thinking about who represents whom, and for whom, is key to my practice. I am interested in stories that contribute to a broader understanding of the fabric of contemporary society. This includes legacies that have brought us to this point in national and global frameworks of existence. I look to explore the relationship between the individual and collective lived experience, in relation to the structural frameworks that are both political and social, through the still and moving image. My personal experience and my understanding of contemporary and historical contexts inform the fragmented narratives that contribute to the stories I tell.”
