Home Ground, 2012-2014 was a research project looking at collections and bundles. The aim was to apply the same methodology to working with quotidian and everyday materials as I usually applied to working in the landscape. Materials investigated in this way included dust, ink, graphite, ashes and recycled fibres and paper. The work was exhibited initially during the open studios exhibition at ASC and subsequently in the Zeitgeist Summer Exhibition at ZeitgeistArtsProjects, London.
One of the pieces was also part of a collaborative project with SHARE collective based at Fabrica, Brighton and was featured in a publication, Thread in 2014.
