Home words /homesick

I am doing a lot of thinking and research into concepts around home and place and it is helping with my homesickness. The other week when I started drawing Dutch houses I was swamped with memories of being a teenager and visiting my Dad in a Holland.

I came up with a list of words

Home as place
embedded
rooted
belonging
community
centre
focal point
locus in space
base
secure
territory
safe
stable
self and self identity ,
social an cultural unit
Together
joy
privacy

And I decided to do some typography, drawing letters is much less evocative had to concentrate on the shapes and I didn’t have the same emotive or embodied response. I need to add some colour and correct my spelling mistake!

I messed about with my iPhone Apps
The Diana app, blender, reflection and Snapseed to be precise
