M85 are ground-launched bomblets which can be dispensed from a variety of cluster munitions, including artillery cargo projectiles, mortars and rockets. The project documents the trajectory of M85 bomblets: from a spot where they exploded (or not) back to their origins. Who are the individuals behind, besides, and in front of it, and what is their relation to M85 and to each other? There is the farmer, the surgeon, the deminer, as well as the engineer, the factory worker, the politician and the soldier. All of them are trying to (re)organise their relation to M85 as well as they possibly can.

‘Geometries’ or built form could respond to and be informed by the socio-spatial realities of the everyday. This clearly extends from the immediate physical reality of objects or structures used in a project to include social processes which evolve through the use of spatial settings.
Antony Coleman’s photographs explore social clusterings in everyday spaces, whether in an infants gym where the protagonists ‘find a space’ to operate independently of each other or in the urban setting of Canary Wharf. The processes that structure these geometries can be practical such as a need to function unhindered or be based on the desire to maintain a personal space. Space and people are rendered entirely dependant upon each other – people’s behaviour is determined by their shifting surroundings but space, too, is provisional: it is human activity that defines, informs and qualifies space, ie that articulates it.
