About the Artist
In an image-driven world, the impact of photographs on our memory is rarely considered. I use analog photographic techniques to analyze and reconstruct the entangled processes of memory, emotion, and existence. Inspired by the developmental qualities of organic beings, the ephemeral components of my pieces give them identities that parallel the transient nature of human life. These organic forms, juxtaposed with minimalist industrial structures, emphasize the ways in which humans have distanced themselves from other forms of consciousness. Through the use of non-archival photographs, my work addresses the innate human desire to preserve ourselves in a system destined for decay.
