This work is focused on the theme of grief and the leftover vestiges following destruction. A polaroid series altered with rum, lemon, oven and hot water is brought together with digital photographs and video that document the same space over different days. The sound design is created from field recordings and analogue tape manipulation.
Both the digital space –photographs, video and field recordings- as the analogue space –polaroids and analogue tape- are subjected to destructive processes. Image and sound are manipulated in an exploration of daily space as a space charged with subjective sense.
