“The making of 99 was inspired through the process of photographing house fecade’s, paying particular attention to ornament. During this time I often visited a disused apartment block on my street and began collecting tile fragments from the remnants of a fireplace inside. Embedded into the cast concrete and overplayed with the image of house 99, the tile pieces act as an ode to ornament and memory.” ~ Lucy Bird, 2021
