Using personal recordings discovered on my Grandad's (John Price) dictaphone when clearing out his house following his death, this project explores the theme of absence. The recordings were made while he lived by himself as a widower.
The audio recordings detailing his daily activities is embodied by a teenage boy. The boy walks areas of Tottenham reservoir system in North London close to where my Grandad grew up some 90 years earlier. His isolation in the landscape is mirrored in the tone and context of the recordings.
The boy throws a football up while walking. Usually a sport of collectiveness, we observe him at this moment in time by himself.
