Habitation explores the human form as domestic space. Taking a single photograph of the human body as a starting point, each digitally manipulated image is constructed by abstracting discrete portions of the original, then stretching, contorting and multiplying these pictorial 'bites' to produce a series of multi-layered decorative image-patterns. On one level, this work explores the potential of computer technology as a creative, prosthetic device that extends the boundaries of photographic creativity. On another level, this work draws attention to the recurrent, albeit fragmented presence of the human form in the patterns and habitation of everyday life. The wallpaper and ceramic tile provide a mode of display that problematises the relationship between human form and domestic habitation. The shapes and forms we employ in the construction of domestic space are found in the human form itself.
