Dust from a Doctor’s Waiting Room
Dust, the debris of time, is the material remains of the people who have existed and the actions that have transpired in a space over time: a catalogue. Dust is both life and death, at once telling of the body’s growth and of its decay. Skin cells shed and fall like grains of sand in an hourglass. 'Dust From A Doctor's Waiting Room' dissects this, both in a physical examination and in an invitation to reconsider its significance. Taken from Falmouth's Westover Surgery and displayed in two exhibitions in different parts of town, the dust is specific to Falmouth residents. Local visitors to the exhibitions may well have been looking at fragments of themselves in the work.
