Research output: Other contributionpeer-review


In a time of COVID-19 some home spaces have been rendered highly visible/visualized. However, care spaces still go largely unseen in social life, let alone the labour processes carried out within them at both formal and informal levels. Care work in these domiciliary settings is emplaced, practiced and felt, but often unseen, often hidden from view or remaining purposely unnoticeable. From a visual perspective, then, home care has been practically impenetrable. This blog post reflects on a concrete project – “Duty of Care” – as well as on wider issues of seeing domiciliary care work.
