All life is subject to the flow of time, through layering, I seek to explore the intricacies that shape who we are. Transparency focuses on the central markers of time, such as past, present, and future. Each piece represents one of these concepts though metaphorical representations of time. The past and our memories are burdened by the constant adage of information that it holds and processes. The present is where we stand full of options and hopeful for the future. And finally, the future is the path we walk down willingly or not. By printing the photographs on acetate and hanging them in back-lit steel structures I seek to imitate the fragility and permanence that is time.
Two Sides of Self
Two Sides of Self, is inspired by my life experiences. The series aims to blend the two places that I consider my homes, Western Mass and Boston. Both have vary different and yet equal influences in my life. I moved to Boston for school and never anticipated staying past graduation, but the city has captivated me and inspired my art in ways I never would have anticipated. While I currently reside in Boston, a part of me will always belong to Western Mass. Two Sides of Self displays the things I love about both places while also comparing the physical similarities and differences between the two places.
