"For the last five years, I have been photographically exploring domestic spaces in a body of work collectively titled At Home.
Recognizing the house as a container of memories and dreams, I investigate the dichotomy and balance between psychological residue and physical presence.  I photograph both actual domestic spaces and dollhouse-scale models and use ambiguous scale and shallow depth of field to blur the distinctions between construct and reality."

"That the world of things can open itself to reveal a secret life - indeed, to reveal a set of actions and hence a narrativity and history outside the given field of perception - is a constant daydream that the miniature presents.  This is the daydream of the microscope: 
the daydream of life inside life, of significance multiplied infinitely within significance. "
- Susan Stewart,  On Longing
