The film reveals how the body is used to convey a person's sense of self. As the viewer interacts with the work, the fragile negative deteriorates. This work is about the trace of sexual abuse. In the cyanotypes, 500 kilograms of salt was documented in a room of an occupied home. They show the preciousness and corrosion of emotional weight within the inhabited history of a house. This work was selected as a Finalist in Photograph for the Celeste Prize 2012; and won 'Best Installation' at the National Open Art Competition, UK.
