Through learning each other, we grow close. Adapt and form new conventions. The transient nature of the world around us is subject to processes of change through growth, decay and human intervention. We are all in the process of change as is everything around us, even the structures within which we live. Through a crack in the wall grows fungus, and to an old repair – new cracks. I have been exploring the dialogue of this process between myself and my home.
Everything is in motion. I come and go, whilst flaking wallpaper falls from shifting walls. Through decay, there is new growth, through death; new life. This house is going through a process of rapid deterioration and so these changes happen quickly. Anything left idle, will be wrapped up and taken away by a creeping vine.
In my film, I have sought to communicate a dialogue between myself and my home. Through result of it’s rapid deterioration, the house requires frequent patching. We have spent almost five years together now (my longest relationship) and so in the film as a kind gesture to me, my house has taken it upon itself to do some darning. But like everything, a repair has it’s own lifespan and nature has it’s own plan…
Spiders build webs in your walls. Frail threads with strength stronger than steel. From wall to wall they string. You see me stitch up a hole in my dress, you feel inspired. You will fix your walls for me, so that I can stay. Thread weak walls to strong, so that they may stay standing….
