This collection of images seeks a broader view of disposed human objects as they come to rest in locations of decay. Surrounding these objects is the landscape they live in with particular details of industry, or in some cases, of activity past. These landscapes possess a harsh character of consumption and waste, and it is this process of obsolescence within personal objects, that connects the trash to its environment. At some point the raw materials necessary to produce these objects could have very well traveled on the same train line, right past these locations that they have come to rest in, having lived an entire human life in between.
If you sit in front of a screen all day, you wont get any exercise and you will get lost in a sea of delusion. The spectacle will swallow you into an abyss, pacified by the image. As you look into the screen in the center of this picture, do not be seduced by its aesthetics, good or bad. It is just an image.
As I have been coming to understand my own work of all media better, I realize the importance of walking and finding marginalized spaces. The locations where human possessions come to rest and be forgotten seem to draw me to them most. It is the act of traversing these spaces and reading narratives into the objects that inhabit them that drives me to them. The objects of decay reach out to connect with the people that once owned them.
This collection of images is intended to capture the decay and destruction of one of the locations that continues to bring me back to it inexplicably for its objects of rejection.
This collection of images is intended to portray movement and transition, both of location and subject. I specifically focused on youth in the street, trying to capture moments of play, as they occur in their environment. Childhood seems to be full of the most intense life transitions, physically the most active phase too. I also tried to pay an eye to ‘in between’ spaces, my relation to them being on the exterior of these places and the people in them.
