We got to know each other over the past year, and realized, although we have a few things in common, we had not yet visited one another’s houses. So, together we decided to carry out some domestic archaeology, by giving each other an online tour of our own houses, to unearth a variety of narratives, and hopefully, a wealth of new information. In a project blogging points of interest along the way, we would choose twelve post headings and interpret them however we wished, in an accompanying collaborative artists’ book.

By acknowledging the past, discussing the present and investing in the future, we had hoped to not only develop our own relationship, but also aimed to raise an awareness of how we are connected to the places where we live, and to understand the psychology that underpins our furnishings, decor and household adornments.

About sense of place in artist books

I am an artist. I find the ephemeral place in my art conjured up through practice. I sift through raw materials with my hopes and dreams, and ideas take form as if intended.
