The book started as an exploration of language found in a 1940’s architects journal. The visual and textual language of the journal reflects the post war era dominated by a masculinity concerned with concrete and modernist building. As the book developed I began to layer in fragments of found drawings and papers salvaged from my deceased father-in-law’s house.
Domestic notes was a journal that I found in a charity shop that resonates with my practice, which currently examines found kitchen materials to make work. It is particular in that it documents the voices of a number of authors who layer together both domestic and practical hints, such as re-pluming a sink. It makes present a range of domestic activities enacted by nuns that would normally be hidden from view.
The book is both a visual and spatial exploration of interior and exterior surfaces that begin to perforate each other.
