Balcony of Daydreams was a major studio work as part of my Degree based on an Adelaide mansion: Carrick Hill at Springfield. The interior space has rich layers of history as it houses an interior balcony and stairways that dates back to fourteenth century England. Again my work is a journey with interior space. The balcony and its shadow allow the viewer to move in a vertiginous manner along its great expanse, visiting the various rooms which trails the length of the work.
