The World of Repair – forming arrangements in relation to what can be freely obtained

I am currently situated in the Seto Inland Sea, Japan. Living in a traditional 100 year old wooden Japanese house, that I am slowly renovating, on an island, surrounded by a calm body of water. So, naturally, I am influenced by my surroundings. Rather than being defined by a particular medium, I aim to utilise resources that are freely available and contain a sense of value. These works consider the Japanese notion of ‘mono no aware’ or ‘the pathos of things’. So my work is contemplative. I am forming arrangements (of islands; islands within islands) and reflecting on our human condition through the actions of salvaging and reconsidering. This is what I find revealing.
