Our House: Documenting A Family House

"By documenting a family house in this way and opening up its space virtually, in a public building, the work examines the evocation of spaces from our past, a wealth of which we all carry around with us and how these memories can be triggered by and effect other spaces we encounter. As in my other solo work, through uncovering the detail of my past and surroundings, the work evokes the spectators? own personal history, raising issues of memory, personal documentation, the persistence of these spaces in our minds, the mnemonic function of spaces and the inevitable sense of loss encountering spaces that have changed."
(Daniel Belasco Rogers)

The Theory of The Dérive

"In a dérive [literally: "drifting"] one or more persons during a certain period drop their relations, their work and leisure activities, and all their other usual motives for movement and action, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the encounters they find there. Chance is a less important factor in this activity than one might think: from a dérive point of view cities have psychogeographical contours, with constant currents, fixed points and vortexes that strongly discourage entry into or exit from certain zones."

(Guy Debord, 1956)
