Lund Point involved the transformation of currently empty dwellings in a 23-storey tower block on the edge of the Olympic Park, into a multi-lens camera obscura, alongside the creation of ultra large format analogue photographic prints, created by young adults from east London with artist Brendan Barry.

The work offers a unique perspective of the site where the new V&A East Storehouse and V&A East Museum will open in 2024 and 2025 respectively. The work is proposed as an act of cultural democracy reframing and inscribing a site through the lived experience of people living in east London. Beyond the Box, co-design with young people, communities, and organisations to build more equitable places to live, work and play. This work was created by Shirin Al'Rashid, Maia Ardalla, Doua Attafi, Condoleezza Baiden, Maddeline Balogun, Simone Casimiro, Tapiwa Cronin, Shirin Naveed, Aiden Nip, Fome Owuasu, Sumaya Rahman, Samreen Sabeer, Lucie Shackley and Seby Wright. Lund Point has been curated with V&A Research Institute Public Engagement Fellow, Matilda Pye and is a V&A East collaboration, supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and Populo Living.
