This image was made in a studio and lit with flashlights! I had a friend light it when we were in complete darkness and the camera shutter was open for a long time.
I hung old antique medicine bottles around me that were meant to symbolize the things I reach for outside myself to fill myself up and feel whole. ie: drugs, alcohol, food, etc.
The "wings" are parachute material. This was a much more difficult photo to create than any of my other images because I did have to rely on another person and we had to test that flashlight lighting a lot to get it right.
These 2 images were created a month apart.
I used a broken down garage as my space and I wore a slip and had many objects that were either given to me or reminded me of someone in particular. The image on the left is about hope and waiting.
The image on the right was about the story in between images ( I wrote it out and hung it up around me ), loss and sadness. Mourning.
blue paper taped to the wall
very large fish hooks hanging from the ceiling.
a lamp lighting me.
This one is about being hooked by what someone says because I want to be hooked. I want to believe them. even though everything points to it not being true. I can't help but lean into the lies because I so want them to be real.
This is in a bedroom - I covered a wall in black seemless paper. Taped a polaroid to the black paper and that was it. Alternative space.
Today - write a little about what's happening for you today. What emotions came up. What situation is on your mind.
Create an alternative space and create visually what is going on for you internally around today's situation and emotions.
