Domestic Spaces

Domestic Spaces

This work looks at how we use objects and spaces to give definition to our lives, these spaces could be the home, the office, the car, the shed, to name a few.  Spaces represent an aspect of ourselves, highlighting areas we would like to show and give attention. It's a human need to connect emotionally to a space.

'One of the basic human requirements is the need to dwell, and one of the central human acts is the act of inhabiting, of connecting ourselves,
however temporarily, 
with a place on the planet which belongs to us and to which we belong.

Charles Moore, School of Architecture: Foreward. In Praise of Shadows. J.Tanizaki 2001 Vintage
