Where Is Home Project.




For this project I wanted to ask myself the question 'where is home?'. At the start I was comparing and contrasting Herne Bay (my hometown) and London (where I live now), but then I decided to try and create a link between the 2...common ground. So I started a mini project within this one...Mail Art. Asking my friends and family from back home to edit and add to polaroids of places in London that I took. When sending them back though I asked them to put other things in the envelopes back like photographs, leaflets, letters and other drawings. This would then lead me onto displaying them for the final piece, using cheap photo frames and parcel paper, I wanted to achieve a Postal Service aesthetic to the piece.
