The concept of ‘home’ has always occupied an indeterminate space: it can refer to a place that has been left behind, or a place to which one returns, or a new place that one, even temporarily, ‘takes up’ (for example, a hotel room). This then means that ‘home’ may refer to a deeply familiar or foreign place, or it may simply be a passing point of reference. This lack of clarity in its meaning has also resulted in its being mythified as a site of utopian belonging. This project explores ideas of 'home' and has involved a broad range of participant-contributors who have posed for me in the studio, eyes closed, in reverie; they were also asked to reflect upon their own life experiences through photographs and to 'donate' an image they regard as symbolic of their idea of 'home'
