The windows in our houses demarcate a permeable boundary between the inside and outside. The interior is a shelter, a back region, and a place that offers a sense of relaxation; people on the exterior are not invited to enter this intimate space. However, the boundaries of our 'castle' can somehow be crossed by simply looking through the windows.

As a foreigner, I am fascinated by the large street-facing windows in residential buildings in Brighton. They are very different from my city, Taipei, where people live in high apartments with small windows. The windows in Brighton remind me I am not in my city, but at the same time they also offer me clues to British everyday life, about which I am very curious.

I find I cannot take my eyes off the windows. For me, even an ordinary domestic scene is attractive and special. Yet, did I just feel a sense of alienation when peeking in from outside?

By cooperating with local residents (who are mostly strangers to me), I try to straddle the line between snapshot and staged photography, and express the everyday from an outsider's view.
