Conceptually dictated, scale plays an important role in both the gallery space and the audience’s relationship to images; viewers are forced to get very close due to the diminutive size of this work — in sharp contrast to the enormous photographic prints we have become accustomed to seeing. These toned cyanotypes with gum overlays investigate domestic space and cultural expectations. The dreamlike photographs of children with banal objects present shifting visual illusions and allusions. This work explores the dichotomy between imagined and real. It references the dreams created by our experiences as children before we knew consequences. The incongruous space plays with tangible time and remembered time warping them around themselves as they cross paths to fabricate haunting imagery.
