Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy 

Knowing Nomads

Lynne & Ross - Scotland

Two veteran nomads who in their time have lived in 3 different continents, equating to 5 countries, 7 cities and 13 homes. They’ve experienced the highs and lows of moving abroad and what it's like moving from house to house and what it takes to create a home.

Being frequent movers, their homes were ever changing. each new location brought a new thing to the walls, or the canvas so to speak. Just like Murray and Steph, Lynne and Ross express their life stories on the wall around them. Interestingly though, after each new adventure, their home would change with the changing memories. New objects and new furniture. Almost like bring a stranger into the home. (side thought when do you stop being a stranger to someone?)

With a family that has grown to a number of 5, Lynne and Ross described the home as a place of “love”. A love of the place you're in but also with the people you share it with. In addition to this, both said: “home is who they are travelling with”. Although they find comfort in the things which surround them, the importance is having people to laugh with.
