home and place 2012-2016

A series of 32 engravings produced over a period of four years made with the purpose to explore the connection and responses we have to the landscape in which we live. In particular how we respond instinctively to moving to a new location and its landscape setting, as well as the process by which this new setting becomes part of our sense of belonging in a place and forms an inexplicable sense of home. These images are a response to the point when the landscape space surrounding our home becomes an integral part of our home and place, as “what begins as undifferentiated space becomes place as we get to know it better and endow it with value” (Yi-Fu Tuan)
