The often hidden side of rising property values and insolvency is the elderly and disadvantaged who became displaced. They lose not only their homes, but their community connections and self-worth. My body of work was very experimental and threw up many problems, not least of which was finding a way to stop the hot glue I used from sticking to the horizontal surface I was working on. I chose the glue so that the work would resemble a woven fabric with voids and solid thread.
