"My work focuses on psychological imprints as a method of mediating the present. The unique treatment that transforms distanced subjects into false or enhanced memories... this pang of the once familiar becoming a revelation could explain both arousal and humor ... and what’s the difference anyway?
I'm drawn to psychologically-bound artifacts which reveal the true stretch of imagination in the context of a personal history as well as in our collective consciousness.
Controversial archives. The precious, manipulated object is hidden & protected by further miasmic sublimations.
The Shroud of Turin marking the transfer of the commonplace to the sacrosanct : it was once a discarded face wipe."
