In each of the works, the room is portrayed as a fragmented space through photogram images that depict an interior as empty, or in other words, devoid of people and objects. Here, an empty interior exists suspended in time in a state of entering a future or exiting a past. In this sense, an interior becomes an imaginary space pieced together and open to the construction of new interpretations about the architectural narrative of the room itself. These photographic collage works explore the empty interior as an in-between place – as an imagined or realised dislocation or a locale to understand home in an expansive and subjective manner. The works call upon viewers to reflect upon conceptions of home along these spectrum’s.
