Mother is inspired by Richard Mabey’s “Nature Cure”, a book which records the author’s recovery from depression by walking in the natural landscape. Mother… protects, the structure is a sanctuary – a destination in itself. Somewhere to sit and be calm. The warm straw smells sweet. Tall vertical slit like openings allow a limited narrow view of the outside landscape, creating thin shafts of light in the dark interior. A space to be alone or sit with others in safety.
