8 metre lengths were marked directly onto the photographic backdrop, the image was cropped & repeated, the first show’s 1m, the following shows 2m and so on. Initial viewing shows a flat clinical B&W graph with uneven increments, but on closer inspection the wobbly lines from the masking tape and the creases in the backdrop reveal the true depth and space.

The contents of my accommodation was moved next door into the studio and carefully placed around the room as to not touch one another through the eye of the frame.

Using a live camera feed into my laptop black tape was carefully placed on the walls and floor of the space so it would appear at the very edge of the frame. The line also resembles the black borders that were printed at the edge of the image.
