Created for Article 25 2013.  The image shows The Barbican as a graveyard with the residential towers as tombstones. Contemporary dancers perform whilst being watched by ghost-like figures of evacuees who lived there and were never to return.

The area formed part of the walls of Roman Londinium. The site was used as a burial ground during Anglo-Saxon times, later becoming a Jewish cemetery and finally an un-consecrated burial ground for non-conformists. The landmark ‘Brutalist’ residential estate was built on an area devastated during the Blitz of World War Two.
