There are four more weeks of writing left for me to compose into entries before I can call this blog complete, but while I muster up the courage to revisit the final month of our thesis I thought I'd share some more recent images instead.

Sited within an abandoned Eaton’s Catalogue Home on a farmstead in rural Manitoba, the thesis dwells in the duality of domestic space as symbolic image and constructed interior. As the final occupants of a building that must be demolished, our work strives to inhabit the instant between waking and dreaming, “the moment where the subject is not sure of the distinction between a representation and a spatial condition” [Charles Rice, The Emergence of the Interior].
