My grandparents refuse to be part of the modern world, living in the past and not connecting with the present. Using a 35mm camera and hi8 video I am observing their life in the house that they have lived in for 60 years. Oswald House is located in a small village where time appears to have stopped. Documenting what its like to grow old together, when there is little conversation but being comfortable in their silence, I am recording what it’s like now that they rarely leave the house. Exploring the themes of their memory and time, and the eventual acceptance of old age.
