Windows to a landscape: point of origin

At the beginning of this experiment I knew I was interested in the subject of “the window” and it’s new meaning post lockdown/quarantine in conversation with @lt_ranch_space during the ranch20 session . I found the window to be such an ordinary thing that we took for granted but during this period had taken on a completely different meaning. It was central to my everyday routine and was in a way my connection to the outside world. To take it further I asked around thirty people if I could have a photograph of their window for this test. From doing so, two things were apparent: you could see the outside landscape and the second was the interior like two parts to a story.

I used the window as a lens of a camera to capture my view and the light within. I converted my room into a pinhole camera with the intention of placing photographic strips of paper around the mapped out space so it would paint a picture of the light movement within.

As a result of this project I believe the “window” could be seen as our connection to the outside landscape and is the thing that links us together – and within this “connection” a strange intangible space is formed during these moments of isolation.
