A Loud Silence

This project examines the domestic space. A space which at first glance seems familiar becomes unfamiliar upon closer inspection. The audience is privy to a landscape of inner desolation. Everyday scenarios are skewed or left teetering on the edge of explanation with only a small insight given to the low frequency trauma passing itself off as normality. Upon initial inspection a loud silence is abstract and difficult to penetrate.

The subjects appear disconnected to their mundane surroundings. A tension is created within each frame that mirrors the fragmentary nature of their world. This body of work underpins common feelings of up rootedness that pervade our urban society and speaks to our collective disconnection. Within the frame peculiarities and oddness are dramatised as the ruptures of the emotional body are internalised.
