Cameraless
Objects unlike images are held, handled; we interact with them as we move through our lives. These images investigate the idea of objecthood, history, and the ephemeral qualities of memory.
Using objects I have collected, I created a physical archive of lights, shadows, and memories hoping to better understand them. The abstract and capricious quality of the cameraless process allows me to piece together fading memories. By rearranging objects, narratives, and memories I explore poetic versions of home, belonging, loss, self, gender, and domesticity all anchored in the premise that objects can trigger past or new narratives.
