Objects, once imbued with meaning from the life they have served, have the ability to create a sense of Place. As Georges Perec, in his Species of Spaces and Other Pieces, writes;
“The passage of time (my History) leaves behind a residue that accumulates: photographs, drawings, the corpses of long since dried-up felt pens, shirts, nonreturnable glasses and returnable glasses, cigar wrappers, tins, erasers, postcards, books, dust and knickknacks: this is what I call my fortune.”
This work saw the obsessive documentation of the traces one leaves behind on the bed, the most intimate of ‘homely’ places, and the subsequent human characteristics that seem to map themselves out on its sheets. Each image is different, and each takes on the identity of its user.
