‘We do not dwell because we have built, but we build and have built because we dwell, that is, because we are dwellers.’ Heidegger, M. Building Dwelling Thinking. (1971)
I collect redundant, aged objects and have a fondness for items that are on the brink of being condemned, deemed unfit for their intended use or function. With these items there is a beauty and wisdom within them. I photograph and re-use these items, and either relate them as they were intended or transform them, employing a position of high regard or adoration.
My current work utilizes reclaimed items focusing on the use of space; how we interact with it and also how we use it. I have been particularly interested in what a space can provide for us, even if the space is devoid of objects.
