  • A portal to a family home in the 1970s through photographs stitched together that reveal the developing interests and behaviours of a household from a bygone era. Inspired by a hope to rekindle nostalgia by collecting and finding meaningful connections between personal photographs, the result functions as a time capsule that is as revealing as it is open to speculation.

    Five different musical scores were created which can alternate on a video loop as an installation. Each composition, created by a different artist, elicits a distinct mood and interpretation of the images, thus influencing the viewer, allowing for dissimilar preferences, as well as encouraging comparative viewings.
