Not at Home

This series explores the tension and balance between security and restriction; freedom and vulnerability. While an interior space can be a sanctuary and provide shelter from external danger, it also has the potential to provoke feelings of confinement and a desire to escape. Similarly, an exterior space can suggest freedom and openness, however, to be outside risks vulnerability and exposure. To visualise this contrast, I removed all means of entrance, exit and communication from the buildings, creating a sense of unease and uncertainty in the images. The viewer finds themselves on the outside, with no means of entry or way of determining what is inside, while the imagined interior is prison-like and claustrophobic.
