My family and the home are the starting point of my work; I explore the histories of the technologies that we use to document memory and life. I am fascinated by the routines that we engage with the camera in order to maintain our ideas of family and the home.
As the hearing child to profoundly deaf parents my work draws on languages of communication embedded in the social relationships and contexts of the everyday. In addition to this, the development of my father's blindness and Alzheimer’s has made me question deeper into the role of photography and video as a conduit for memory.
I delve into photographs and videos from family archives and contemplate on how these artefacts provide us with grounding in our history. I explore questions surrounding the truth and fragility of our documented histories and the potential flaws that are inherent.
