The Investigation of Drifting Importance
Photo series 2014
This photo series depicts a fragmentary state of being through the representation of relationships. The work reflects on a period in life being fully submerged in the realm of marriage and reproduction. It is an attempt to explore the idea given to us through societal pressures that one is not complete without a “second half.” A pressure that has become increasingly prevalent in a generation in which each week a new photo of an engagement ring or ultrasound is shared on social networking websites. It raises the question of whether following these prescribed roles is truly what completes a person. Can one find completion on his own? Can one ever truly find completion?
In these photos, people are engaged in different aspects of relationships. The people, however, have been almost completely erased until all that remains are the hands and feet; the points connecting the earth to the action. These almost ghost-like images of limbs, appearing as if they were floating give the impression of both humor and horror.
