The house book

The work from ‘A Mile Apart’, was recently on show in Belfast at the historic Linen Hall Library, as part of the ‘Migration, Memory and Mimesis’, exhibition.

In the lead up to this exhibition the limitations of the space made me consider how someone could interact with the text that accompanied the images. I didn’t want a text placed beside or below the framed work. The catalogue links the work well but not everyone wants to buy one. So I spent most of my summer holiday making and sewing house books, drawing on the imagery to link to a 3D version of the photograph and include the text on the gable wall ends of the houses. There were 10 of these to accompany the 10 framed pieces.
