This work is about the decline of small privately owned manual labour trades, where it is becoming increasingly difficult for them to survive. Due to it being easier and cheaper to import materials from other countries. Within the work, I am showing the traces of these potentially redundant spaces. Encompassing details of objects along with interiors and exteriors, such environments become like film sets, loosing their original function. These locations are near to where I live in Northern Ireland, an area of which I know very well. Places like these used to seem familiar to me and remind me of my childhood, but they are now becoming increasingly unfamiliar, as we become more and more surrounded by technology.
