Changing Perceptions Exhibition

Artist Statement - Domus habitus

Using everyday domestic objects found in and around Ipswich, I have created an installation which reflects my interest in ecology, domesticity and industrialisation.

In this work I explore the 19th century fascination with capturing, collecting and displaying the natural world in a quasi-ecological display. The resulting "domestic ecosystem" draws parallels between the domestic and natural environments, inviting the viewer to explore the everyday on an alternate level: seeking to change perceptions regarding how we view and interact with the world around us.....
