Walk Cylces is a study on the psychology of the mind and the motion of the female human body. Referencing motion studies conducted by photographer Eadweard Muybridge, the female figure in Walk Cycles endlessly navigates a hallway with fractured, graceless, nonsensical, and awkward movements. Sometimes running, walking, or frozen in an infinite loop, the viewer is presented with a fragmented self portrait of the figure as she moves through a transitional space. In the hallway she endlessly paces, her movements become a metaphor for inner frustration and anxiety as she appears to have little control over her own actions. In this way, her body movements become a site through which to explore gender stereotypes of the maniacally depressed woman.
