Working within archival and heritage based projects has been central to Kevin Morris’s current work and development. His most recent work engages with concepts of craft, material and place, initially motivated by an investigation of his own family heritage and material culture. Ultimately his current work looks to encourage its audience to consider how they interact with their own habitats, be they man made or natural, as well our collective connections to heritage and tradition.
