My work investigates the construction of meaning and its impact on social and psychological states. Much of the source material for my photographic projects utilizes photos I took in first grade. Re-appropriating images from my past allows me to be in conversation with an earlier, imagined self, and to explore the in-between quality of memory and longing.
"Common Visions, Saint on Door" is a piece from a larger body of still projections. Projection, in its many senses, from the technological to the social and metaphysical, addresses my contradictory feelings of unease and lightness toward the idea of a shifting subjectivity. Questions about who we are when we are not materially "there"—what constitutes being and spirit—have occupied me throughout my work.
"Correspondences" is a site-specific work for the Photographic Resource Center Library. This project celebrates the act of browsing in the creation of identity and the construction of knowledge. Finding other people's notes, scribbles, bookmarks and other artifacts of browsing allows me to discover the unknown, the familiar, the re-interpreted, and the yet-to-be, all within one frame.
