The Inhabited series was inspired by walks in Shropshire and surrounding areas, in which Andrew made observations of cabins, caravans and make-shift shelters of various kinds. Each place revealed evidence of previous or ongoing habitation, usually by persons unknown. The circumstances of their abandonment are also unknown or ambiguous, provoking curiosity in the human stories behind these secretive dens. In their isolated woodland surroundings, these places could be viewed as idyllic retreat or desperate refuge.
In the works, Andrew invites contemplation of primitive or precarious living conditions from multiple perspectives including viewpoints of ancient human history and dystopian future. Gaston Bachelard’s “Poetics of Space” was a key reference.
