This body of work takes the lesbian community as the starting point through which to explore lived experience in two contexts, the urban and the rural. By constructing a dialogue between two, self-identified lesbianswho have each inhabited both city and countrysidethe project aims to highlight the role of space and place in building and sustaining communities. The importance of intergenerational communication for the construction of a lesbian identity is a significant feature of this relational understanding. Through the use of still and moving image, the project invites the viewer to bear witness to the testimony of these women as they discuss their experiences, both in the past and the present, of moving between the two locations.
