Objects provide our narrative, the nostalgia they provide assists in cementing our identity, place and history. The work presented questions the position these presentations hold and how we choose to share them as there is a dynamic in the 'public and private', even in the domestic household environment. The idea of collection is a 'public' facade and acts as representation to give a sense of place, a childhood memory, a considered presentation to share with others. The exploration of the 'private' is a personal and emotional symbolic revelation of grief and loss. Together the images confront and expose the social and psychological barriers erected in the domestic environment.
