The fragility of fantasy, which can only exist as a result of the reality, within which it is anchored. It attempts to address the horror of a reality that is repeated ad nauseum. This interrelationship between reality and repetition creates the necessity for a ‘portal’ to a utopian dreamscape. Everyday objects are both starting points for taking photographs, as well as the use of haiku and video to create immersive installations. My practice is led by interrogation of this duality and a reflection of my own metaphysical relationship with objects, as well as how what an object ‘is’ is defined. These photographs search for the limits and the roots of things as they are. A photograph involves more than the sum of its parts, I carry an image to its edge – the place where the eye is compelled to take over – and push it to transcend its silence, spillover, and go elsewhere. A single image is not eloquent enough because it’s conceived to only make sense within the turmoil of ideas and repetition of images. Quality is merely the distribution aspect of quantity.
