In A Loved One Sleeping, I photographed the capricious collection of objects that were left behind at the Fraser Studios in Sydney after the building was just about to be handed back to the developers. This odd collection of ephemera – bricks, string, milk crates, and trestles somehow became supercharged memorials to what was. These inanimate objects, lying abandoned where they fell, acted as stand-ins for lived experience. I framed them in a formally constructed, central position within the photograph, positioning them between landscape and portraiture. My intention was that these object ‘sitters’ would suggest transient and unseen human presences and that the works would speak of the shifts and slips that play out in a dynamic built environment.
