Tents, Caves and Other Shelters
Born out of memories of making childhood dens and time spent exploring and creating things in the natural environment, this work explores notions of nurture, the maternal and the haptic. It is often said that photographs have the ability to replace personal memory however my work has adopted a kind of roll reversal in which memories are the informer of the photographs: they make the intangibility of memories tangible, creating contact between thought and things. These ambiguous forms become monuments of dwelling and process. The stitching creates a space within the image of the unknown. These spaces are not empty, but rather a reflection of the self, a miss en abyme.
