Songs of Paradise
Piddington has been my home for the first twenty-one years of my life. My parents have now decided to move on, 'and so the old nest enters into the category of objects'. The philosopher Gaston Bachelard talks of the loss of the first home as a trigger for 'daydreaming of security'. This project explores the memories of that security. Home may have become an object, but the experience of place leaves an imprint on those who have grown up there, shaping our memories and understanding of ourselves. The concept of paradise is one that differs from person to person; an idyllic place that can represent both freedom and restraint.
