Between the Lines and the Kitchen Knife
During lockdown I look at my home environment in a different way. Objects once overlooked take on new importance and imagery. I have taken inspiration from Bernd Steigler's essay a History of Armchair travel. My video is set in the kitchen this is both the beating heart of the home, and a dangerous space. Sharp knives and boiling substances cause cuts, scolds and burns, the 'little injuries' and big injuries that scar us. I have used everyday objects along with boring, monotonous, undervalued household tasks to explore an imagined space.
