I am asking people to think of public places they visit when they are
neither work nor home, either because they deliberately choose to ‘get
away’, or because they simply pass through these places as part
of their everyday routines. I meet with people in these places, take photographs,
and ask them to describe how they found each place and what they normally

directions on how to find each place, and images of each place are posted
on the website.

of Gairloch Gardens.
I will be staying in the apartment
above Oakville Galleries until October 10. This will allow me to experience
the park both during the day and night, and the range of activities that

who use the park, both during the day and night, about how they use the
park. Responses will be
posted on the ‘Gairloch Gardens’ section of the website.
