In an age where Satnav offers a guiding light through places unknown, and Google Street View reduces us all to that tiny orange man, it’s easy to assume that the thrills of individual exploration have been lost to a universalised perspective. The comprehensive, digital nature of modern mapping not only...

Sarah Breese – Moments Like These Never Last

Sarah’s work combines found objects from the real world to create a visual record of the domino effects and cycles, repetitions of events and memories that would otherwise be forgotten.
