The Habitus project explores the covert and symbiotic relationship between our immediate environments and the deep-seated, seemingly extraneous nature of our collective human patterns and behaviours. While the term itself refers to the social values and predispositions acquired from the prolonged exposure to a given culture, its literal reciprocity to both habit and habitat is far from coincidental. The work presented blurs the boundaries between the captured moment and its contextual backdrop to the point of nonexistence, revealing the profound and elusive connection between our inner and outer states.
