My relationship with my home and the landscape surrounding it is complicated and ambivalent. Bound up with memories of family who once lived here and who have now left home or died, there are many associations, both happy and sad.
Continuing on from a previous series The Room, six years later these photographs depict some of the same objects out in the landscape throughout the changing seasons. They are an attempt at making a mark, leaving a trace – a fugitive memorial. And in a symbiotic relationship, objects from outside in the landscape are brought into the room to complete the process. When this project is finished perhaps then I will be ready to leave home.
