Always and Never at Home

The title of this project comes from the idea that you can be in one place and simultaneously somewhere else – The separation of the physical and the mental, the internal and external worlds.

The work is about our relationships with these spaces, in particular the inner space we retreat into when in public spaces, our safe place – in particular virtual spaces like that of a smart phone, it’s about capturing something that resonates but also feels poignant, as the lines between physical and virtual become more and more blurred. I’m just really drawn to people that appear to be somewhere else entirely.

As a nondivergent person my practice is a way for me to still my mind and focus in on the quiet moments away from the noise – We spend so much of our time distracted, I’m interested in the moments we’re not.

The work is a mixture of photography and moving image, both conceptual and observational.
