Berger cites ‘We are always looking at things in relation to ourselves, our vision is continually holding a circle around itself. Constituting what is present to us as we are.’ As adults, when we think back to childhood, memories of spaces, thoughts and feelings can appear cryptic and indefinite. Details can become superimposed with present and proceeding experiences, with fiction, with socio-cultural definitions and the infiltration of post-binary perception. All things add up to create these little pockets of liminal space, quasi-realities. My work alludes to the concept of childhood as a psychosocial space. A fiction by adults, for adults; the childhood of adulthood. Tabula Rasa plays with our impressionability as children and how the thoughts and words of adults come to shape our being.
