Infinite House - Cyanotypes
This work uses patterns sourced from my home combined with the form of my child’s dollhouse to acknowledge how children’s play replicates and reinforces learned social dynamics. The images of the dollhouse appear alongside enlarged or reduced patterns found in our home, visually entangling these spaces by collapsing the relative scale of the “real” and “pretend” space.
As a child’s imagined space of play replicates and interprets the emotional and social spaces of home, there is a normalization of perceived reality. The project gives weight to the capability of the home in shaping greater social relations, through acknowledgement of the malleable nature of a developing individual. The potential for massive societal shifts is therefore capable through small and even imagined personal spaces.
