'peephole' ('hotwater bottle', peephole, lightbox & slide)

"We're looking through a peephole at a distorted photograph
....and suddenly a little boy's face comes into focus. If you turn
away for a second and look back it has turned into a teddy bear
again. The image is clever, beautiful, haunting. Why does she
hate the picture of Davin? "Because he's wearing the clothes
he died in"
Simon Hattenstone

until starting to work on this exhibition this was the only
photo left of Davin...a horrific reminder of his violent death.

A few years after his death, in the early stages of grieving,
it became important to transform this image. I was fortunate
at the time, to have an opportunity to experiment freely with
a colour photocopier (courtesy of Canon). This process
resulted in a comforting & symbolic image of re-memberance.

Davin had been wanting new trousers for teddy,
he never got to see them,
we made them anyway

to hold teddy
is to be held
in the
of memory
