The project deals with the re-fictionalizing of existing narratives – one an excerpt from Homer’s Odyssey and the other tales of Irish Sea Monsters. Both being appropriated and mapped through speculations, the work looks at our relationship with the unknown; either as the object of our desire or as an escape.
