Bourgeois Utopias

"O brave new world"

— William Shakespeare
and Aldous Huxley

The English suburbs have influenced the rapid growth of suburbia across the USA and now China. Originally known as the 'middle class flight' from the centre of whirlpool cities, they have developed with utopian ideals that can be described as socialist and conservative. Bourgeois Utopias is an expanding body of work that reflects upon the grey area between utopia and dystopia, as well as the conflicts between the ideals and realities of the suburban home.
