The Trap Rooms
This work is a study of space, in particular the function of a theatre space. These spaces are hidden from view; they act as a metaphor for the staging of reality, that underlies contemporary life. The normally hidden machinery of the theatre, what really drives the spectacle, acts as the social and economic forces that shape our lives. These spaces vary but the common denominator amongst them is that they deliver an illusion of reality. Shallow, contrived illusions of reality. In a philosophical sense they ask questions about the nature of observable reality, what we see is never just what is seen, but merely all that is available to us.
