‘This project is related to my investigation on a 19th century poet, Emily Dickinson’s life and her poetic space that is interwoven with my own personal narrative. I am interested in the idea of the house as a physical and architectural space for dwelling and creating, and at the same time as a metaphysical space as the expanding labyrinth of the human mind.’
