A cushion made from the fabric of the District Line on The London Underground,
'Home' sits on the back seat of the taxi. For the majority of people who
recognise the design, but maybe not its specific source, the cushion evokes
memories of both London and travel. Whilst the edition of four is for
sale, Rachel took one with her on her travels across Australia during
2000. She photographed the cushion against the backdrop to many of Australia's
most dramatic landscapes, such as Ayre's Rock.
"The idea of home can be related to wherever you stop. Your home can
be constantly changing"
(The Manly Daily, Timeout Section, Friday, September 15th, 2000).

These two photographs are from the 'Home' series where the artist
travelled with the cushion taking that little familiar piece of London
with her. It came to represent that presence of a place or person absent
from the picture. Photographs 2000
