Remnants On The Verge
Photographs documenting used toys found in unseen parts of the garden refer to change, the forces of nature, and human impact on the environment. Used and abandoned, they symbolise the end of childhood and the start of a new life stage. I am interested in how over time natures forces slowly covers up the evidence and if left untouched they would become another buried layer of human history on top of what has gone before, a reminder that we are just visitors to this place. The time has come to dispose of all the paraphernalia accumulated, and when dug out of their temporary hiding places, if these remnants are unable to be recycled, they will just be moved to another hiding place.
