The Trap Rooms

This work is a study of space, in particular the function of the theatre space. These are the spaces below the stage; they act as a metaphor for the staging of reality that underlies contemporary life. The normally hidden machinery of the theatre, what really drives the spectacle, acts as the social and economic forces that shape our lives.  

The trap rooms come in many varieties, but the common denominator amongst them all, is how they deliver an illusion. They work towards creating a form of reality that appears more real than reality itself.

In a philosophical sense they ask questions about the nature of observable reality, what we see is never just what is seen, but merely all that is available to us.
