Separated by over three thousand kilometres, this project explores the distance between me and my grandmother. In an attempt to reconnect with her, I have asked her to take photos in her home and of her daily life. I project the images she provides onto objects of mine and rephotograph them; trying to close the gap between us. The space between us in geography and age is depicted in the space between the things with which we adorn our environment.
Displaying the images on thin fabric, I hope to create an opportunity for the viewer to interact with the work, walk around it, and see their own family through it.
