The domestic space is defined not only by occupancy, but by the barriers erected between itself and the outside. The project investigates a particular moment, an interlude in the narrative of the space. A pause between two periods of action, which may begin or end at any time. Agency belongs to the unseen figure: the contents of the space espoused or inherited. The paradoxical openness of the space to the other creates tension; a sense of transgression. The viewer is implicated by an awareness of the barriers which delineate the boundaries of the space.
