A DAYS JOURNEY INWARDS
The word journey often means the most ordinary travel; for example, a commute to work. In this context, though, the word carries connotations of a metaphorical voyage, one in which we go not only from one physical place to another, but also from one internal “place” to another. Meaning that moving through the landscape echoes or stimulates the passage through a series of thoughts. Everyday I passed through the entrance to the glass workshop, and as I entered I bowed my head to avoid the drying laundry hanging salute between the arches. This space, and its specific transaction, both physical and psychological, became essential to my experience, of a timeless space where the line between the everyday continuum and the celebrated is intertwined. The project developed in tandem with the experience of that journey inwards, and exhibited amongst the laundry.
