‘Fool’s Island’ is an investigation into how we live our lives and what we choose to assign value in relation to our mortality. In a search for the shared human experience of trying to balance the domesticated and the wild this photographic essay portrays the tension of living on this spectrum as seen both through the eyes of the individual and the political choices of the group. It is a look at the animal living in our homes between our furniture. That animal being a pet we have tamed, the unwelcome wild creeping in through the cracks in the floor or the untamed in ourselves. A journey to examine not ‘the meaning of life’ but what gives life meaning.
