The blind spot occurs when negotiating the ground between utopian fantasy and domestic reality.
The fragile, partial houses and signifiers of a neighbourhood are constructed with a Brechtian philosophy in mind. They show their workings and their flaws reminding the viewer that they are just a suggestion of place and of home.

The interior of the houses are inspired by patterns and furniture from a manual about how “creative people” live and Country Living magazine which works as a consideration of the barrage of information about how to live and what to aspire to.

Homage to home.

Homage to home.

It is a physical manifestation of an imagined space. It has connotations of childhood and alludes to a perceived notion of home as a place of safety. It references Edward T. Hall’s theory of proxemics as a set of rules to define our spaces.

This comes from a wider body work exploring the ideologies connected to how we occupy spaces.

In memorandum. replica.

This is the start of a new piece of work in the I Am Surrounded By Objects That Define Me body of work.
I am working with items I have been carrying around with me for some time now. There are also objects that I got in exchange for my bric-a-brac lucky dip parcels that I donated to the emely and sprouting 56 "things in a parcel" event at christmas last year and there will be (but not yet) drawings and photos of the items I gave away.

remember- it is a work in progress!

New studio. Hello.

Finally got myself a little better set up and settled in to my new studio space with Bow Arts Trust. The donation of a table from my new studio-neighbour helped greatly!

happy face.
