This project explores the peculiar physical spaces we sometimes inhabit, often by necessity rather than by choice, such as the interior space of an aircraft. Identifying moments of competing desires, I’m interested in the increasingly common phenomenon of pets travelling onboard of airplanes to provide support for their owners. I’m interested in the act of sharing the plane’s confined space with these animals and the broader socio-cultural meaning of this mode of travelling with animals. Informed by my observations of social practices that speak to contemporary anxieties and competing human desires, my practice seeks to highlight the complexities that can be found in seemingly mundane situations.

We also acknowledge and extend our respect to the Traditional Owners of all lands on which our work is viewed, shared and enjoyed, and to all Elders, past, present and emerging.
