Kat focuses upon the fragility of life and is a response at a deep level to ways of dealing with our lack of control. A sense of melancholy pervades the work and the slightly uncanny spaces she depicts but it is a quality of human presence and connectedness that is at the heart of the practice. Dollhouse delves into the world of the doll's house. The project asks us to suspend our knowledge of the artificiality of these miniature worlds and to accept their uncanny reality. The objects in the miniature doll's house seem to be full of potential, striving to become the real objects they imitate but accidently along the way becoming something altogether more strange and interesting.
