This series of work is focused on the wall as a structure that delineates, defines and often protects an area. Using sections of external wall-like structures, I have created modified “shells” of suburban dwellings, hinged together in such a way as to wrap or enclose the imagined occupant. These “individualized” units can be thought of as adaptable architecture, the use of exposed dowels suggesting interchangeability.

The theme of temporary displacement or transience in my work is demonstrated by my use of tents. My placement of tent sections or fragments inside both fabricated and pre-existing architectural structures creates a tension between the permanent (fixed) space and the transient space symbolised by the tent.
