The new country

 

The New Country explores the private space in which our cultural and personal landscapes overlap. Through re-imagined worlds I engage issues of domesticity and escape. Imagined landscapes and newly discovered worlds expand our spheres of possibility and inform a new relationship with the transcendent. Domestic space, informed by this heightened awareness, becomes a new arena for possibility, transforming the familiar and reflecting a very real desire for experiences which de-center the everyday.
Using Science Fiction as a laboratory for experimentaion, I create a zone for contemplation. SF introduces a platform from which to re-examine the familiar and opens a liminal space within which I can imagine a possible new landscape parallel to history, both personal and public.
