Gizmo! (lawn) ŠLee Milne

Lee makes work that explores how political and social attitudes to work and leisure affect identity, community and landscape, in particular the major transitions of retirement and older age. I am interested in the impact on an individual level, when identity and position within a dominant social structure are no longer shaped by profession, and the resulting ways in which people remain physically, mentally and socially active. The images explore the inherent energy, both positive and negative, in this tension, reflecting a nostalgia for the past against a need to adapt to the present, and in turn increased vulnerability, invisibility and isolation against neighbourliness, community and volunteering.
