Mackinnon-Day has spent the last 25 + years working in locations such as shipyards, housing estates, historic sailing vessels, and farms. The collective body of research aims to bring apparently uneventful and overlooked aspects of lived experience into visibility; to investigate the ordinary rather than the heroic and monumental; and to create ideas for art where it is not usually seen or practised.
These same aims apply to her film work The Start of All Imaginings with the Chester traders’ journey from an old to new market. This work has even more significance when exhibited in Venice – one of the most important historic trading centres in the world.
