A few lines from an application for a studio residency

Please outline what you hope to achieve from this residency (maximum of 350 words).

I have a child’s tooth wrapped in paper in the pocket of my dressing gown. In the porch there is a cupboard full of headless dummies, dressed in second hand suits.Two goldfish died because the tank was covered by a stack of pallets and I lost sight of them. All the kitchen is spitting up is more white emulsion and wire.
