My Place, My Space consists of chairs, a desk, a door, a ladder, stairs, and a bed. I aim to create a space with these items, which everyone can see in their own homes.
I have been living in Sydney for 9 years, yet I still don't know where my home is. I have never owned a house and I am still searching for my own place. A place where I can create my space.
The floating objects imply my 'up in the air' situation. The ladder and stairs may subconsciously express my desire to reach somewhere.
