‘Ghost of My Living Mother’ is a dust rendition of an old photograph of my mother when she was a young girl. It directly links and explains my own obsession with dust and my Mothers obsession with dusting, highlighting the very different environments we grew up in; hers that had been made unsafe and dusty by the war and mine that was made clean and safe by a war on dirt.
