Space under our feet. The triggers that promote envisioning within this kind of vertical space below ground relate to my work on attitudes to mortality in society. This work looks at the continuous processes by which past civilisations are concealed and then revealed, altering and readjusting perceptions of mortality and thus the recognition of the divisions between life and death. It questions the boundaries between illusion and reality and how they affect consciousness of self in a given place.
