For the last 8 weeks one of my papers for university has been a course called Art Place, where we were given the work brief assignment of “Turangawaewae” (def.) - our home-place/where we belong.

After working through various process and media, including drawing, photography, painting, collage, and video, we were to produce a body of work based around this idea ‘a place to call home’

11 collages, 1 video, 2 paintings, 4 drawings, over 250 photos, 14 trial stencils, and a 60 (double-sided page) workbook of critical analysis later, I produced this body of work.

For me, my family is my home- independent of location. Wherever I am geographically, if I am with them, I feel at home. My work is the process of trying to bring that sense of comfort and stability to my new home in Wellington which is still foreign and disconnected to me. Through the superimposition of my brothers face onto images of the Wellington City architecture that I see on a daily basis, in various stages of absorption, I am attempting to bridge the gap between ‘homes’ through an artistic medium. The final image in the series is the image of the face having been physically absorbed into the city onto the wall of an alleyway down the back of my apartment building.

It is a connection that is helping me become comfortable with my new surroundings. But like a puzzle- I am still trying to fit all the pieces into place.

The final body of images was made using spray paint, stencils, and printed images
