I found an interesting blog post from Studio Inscape here on the concept of “liminality”, a term I have not come across before. From the Latin limen, Oxforddictionaries.com defines liminality as 1. “relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process” and 2. “occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold” which links in to my theme of entrance.
Developing on the concept I had for my final project piece using memories and images of my grandparent’s home, I can see how my feelings as a child growing up in this secure and caring family home matured subtly over time as a I became an adult and the dynamics of the family group changed as the older members passed away and my own children arrived. This was a coming of age rite of passage that everyone must experience in some form.
