Cloister is a personal meditation on a building that houses a community within a community. Taking a family connection to a convent as a starting point, it looks at the history behind the red brick. In thinking about the real and imagined lives of the order it explores the impact of the nuns on their local community, and the social and political changes affecting the nuns themselves. It wonders about the future of both the order and the building in a changing world. Primarily, it is a rumination on the different ways women move through the world, hidden and otherwise.
