TootsBy drawing inspiration from the everyday, my work is used as a tool to raise awareness and encourage my audience to contemplate a variety of issues associated with our modern society. Considering the home environment, 'Toots' is an exploration of personal domestic space and how its inhabitants exist and live within it. The work documents my Grandmother, a recluse who disconnects herself from the outside world and lives solely within the confines of the domestic space of her home since the onset of illness. In collaboration with her, I am able to expose how she has constructed a space that appears to offer notions of protection, safety and control, while the security that the space appears to offer is diminishing.
