For the past 6 years I have been filming my family interacting, and in doing so I have amassed an archive of footage to draw upon, almost all of which has been filmed within my grandparent’s flat in London. In Don’t Hurry, Don’t Worry, I utilize that archive of familial interactions, projecting old footage back onto the original spaces where they were recorded in the flat, creating a portal or a window into the past. Re-filming these projections in the kitchen, living room, dining room , and bedroom the work evokes how inseparable we become from the spaces we inhabit, which through a lifetime lived function as an extension of our bodies and ourselves.
