The Reading Room (2000-2002) had its starting point in the memory of a rainy afternoon sitting in the reference library in Berwick-upon-Tweed. The library closed, was relocated but still seemed a fitting starting point for this work. It was no longer possible to return to the physical place. All I could do was explore the imaginary space.
So The Reading Room functioned as a framework within which to site an exploration of memory. It suggested a space for reflection, enquiry, and possibility.
