The experience of childhood is a complex product of cultural expectations, space and media narrative. Roaming Radius explores childhood through an investigation of spaces that Josh explored and inhabited as a child, which no longer exist, and his childhood friends. Adulthood, similarly, is constructed through an experience of space and through narratives of longing for lost places. Engagement with the adult world means acceptance of the boundaries that allow us to see things 'as they are', not as they could be. Can we reject these boundaries and reconnect with the power of imagination? In a world without imagination there are no dreams and there is no hope, the desire for change does not exist and we are easily controlled.
