Question: Tell me about “The House Shelters Daydreaming”
The title comes from Bachelard’s book “The Poetics of Space.” I am interested in the spaces we live in and how they shape our imaginations. I set this work in an attic because attics are places rarely visited, but full of memories. I want this piece to read more as an imaginary space than a real one, as if the viewer is sifting through the thoughts and memories of someone’s past.
