Rituals Interrupted (2004-2005)

Rituals Interrupted is a body of work which was made when I stayed with my parents for a prolonged period of time after not having lived with them for a number of years.

My parents had grown older and my relationship with them had changed – they were now an ageing couple living on their own after all their children had left the family home. I began to notice their daily rituals that my presence in their house seemed to disturb.

Our communication was frequently via ‘post-it’ notes which I began to collect, and later photograph, along with aspects of their daily routines, to produce Rituals Interrupted.
