Artist’s statement

We become familiar with our home and the sight of it becomes routine. Details, emotions and ideas we sensed within the landscape are lost. Therefore, my work strives to revive the distinctiveness of the suburban scenery that we are accustomed to. You are the explorer seeking to observe modern suburbia through time, stepping out of your home into a new purlieu, slowly becoming habituated to the neighbourhood over a number of days. My work encompasses a series of self-recorded video clips carefully edited to accompany two contrasting soundtracks.
