Reed installation by Salttrails artists Liz McGowan and Jane Frost for Aisle and Air, an exhibition at Cley curated bay Isabel Vasseur

A fine structure of walls made from reed that meanders and curls in upon itself to form a hide.  When the act of seeking shelter – under a tree, in a cave – becomes the act of making shelter, there is a fundamental shift in the way in which one perceives the world:  ‘outdoors’ happens because we have made an ‘indoors’ . Once we are ‘inside’, we experience ourselves as no longer visible to, no longer a part of the ‘outside. The ‘outside’ becomes ‘other’, a place of potential menace that we need protection from.
