Presenting an experience of being home and the pressures of motherhood, I am exploring different states of “being” within the microstructure of house and family. Memory and daydream are the fluctuations of an internally focused mind, moving in and out of the present moment. We drift apart despite our needs and our incessant wants. Here, a sense of longing is concealed by a need for privacy or separation. Within the sanctity of home, presence is often interrupted by something real and mundane. I am interested in where the mind wanders during these rifts and interruptions. The landscape of these projected values can be soft, almost ethereal, self-soothing and escapist, or tinged with harshness, abruptly bisected by a fear of division and loss. I try to find the honesty where it lingers, often unseen, and bring it some kind of form.
