As the development of technology turns useful things around us into an uncomfortable past, human beings adapt and get used to this ever-changing environment. As we continue our busy lives it’s not easy to pay attention to the big and small lives around us and those, who struggle to adapt to the constant changes caused by us.
‘Home’ hopes to highlight the changes made to the environment that take place over time, changes in the form of the home and it’s use for us and for other beings. This body of work demonstrates how we live adapting to the changing environment whilst making visible the harmonious or unbalanced relationships we have with other life around us.
It is an inevitable task for us to work towards a harmonious future, with kind concern and care for the lives that live around us, who struggle to adapt to the changing environment.
