Ironing Basket (4) is one of six analogue images depicting a pile of laundry in the artist’s home. The images were taken utilising a Mimiya C330 on Ilford HPS 120 film, which then printed utilising the cyanotype process onto cotton fabric. The series of images depicts the artist’s ironing basket filling up over a series of days. Tompkinson’s work explores humanity throughout domesticated objects and environments; the ironing basket reflects a portrait of her household through the pile of clothing they have worn over the days prior. Creating work that reflects daily life and activities provides the artist with a platform to explore and gain a deeper understanding into her humanity and lifestyle.
