Eighteen Hundred and Forty Eight. 2009. Detail. Printed  labels, blue tack.

This piece evolved from a computer-generated imageLabels dress, reflecting on a specific period in 2006 and the death of my partner. The digital print combined factual imagery within the form of a dress. Eighteen Hundred and Forty Eight took this idea of evidencing and quantifying the experience, using an archive of factual information from the period. This evidence-based record which was hung on a wall, denoted a series of concrete occurrences, many quite banal, making the  timescale of 1848 hours tangible through size and surface area.
