The series of photographs Suspicious Circumstances often involves seeking vacated buildings and exploring their interiors. I then appropriate the discarded objects I find within these spaces, scenes or sculptures are created with the objects I have to ‘play’ with. The rooms and their contents are then photographed. In these photographs the furniture has been personified, scenes depicting their suspicious deaths are created. These are then photographed using a series of rules used by police forensics for photographing crime scenes to obtain a photograph that would stand as evidence in law – a ‘truthful’ record. In some circumstances the photograph is displayed in the space it was taken replacing the object photographed.
