Inspired by photographer Jon Crispin’s Willard Asylum Suitcase project:
‘I am fascinated by processes where the memory is locked during years or decades in containers you would have expected to be processed sooner’. The piece explores memory and it’s impact on perception of space. A woman navigates the familiar, sometimes recalling long-buried experiences.

Inspired by one of my brother’s poems and part of my own life’s story. The piece tells the journey of three sailors searching for a better place to live, a place to call home. On their journey they experience a broadened spectrum of emotions.
