En Mémoire: Espaces vides et familiers!

In Memoriam: Empty Spaces and Familiars! (2021)

Final Submission Creative Enquiry

A collection of short stories.


This virtual installation is itself a small component of a much larger concept.  A series of short stories that combine to create a running narrative each story is represented by a small installation.  Individually they stand alone but also combine to create a larger possibility.  Each narrative feeds into the next a reflection on the empty spaces and the familiars that fill our memories.

Intended to be viewed as both material and immaterial each scene has an accompanying film that would ordinarily play alongside the physical space giving the viewer more than one form of story with which to engage.

Acknowledgements

I would like to express a huge gratitude to my tutors for their patience, motivation, enthusiasm, and immense knowledge especially through some very difficult times.


Besides my tutors, I would also like to thank my fellow students and practitioners all of whom have provided both critical and emotional support during my studies.  Hopefully we can celebrate together in person in the near future.

A very special thank you goes out to junior bizarre for their track Birds which has been a joy to work with.  Please check out their work on Sound Cloud.

And finally to my loving and supportive partner and wife, Sharon, who has been there every step of the way as  I undertook this journey.  My heartfelt thanks!
