The project seeks to discover how a sensory experience can induce a human connection and relationships when we are currently deprived of this. Choosing a family member allowed a comfortable position to document and observe Gordon, understanding how he lives and works in this space/garden. Through documenting and sharing this experience, the moving image piece acts as a gateway, triggering idea’s of sanctity, familial ties and death.
