Trying, But So Often Failing To Bend Toward The Light is a body of photographic objects that explore light, space, memory, fragility, and the history of photography. Using medium format film, transparent film, plexiglass, and other fragile materials, I attempt to explore light and space as it relates to memory, perception, and viewer experience. This work considers the poetic metaphors of light as emotional and psychological indicators of space and time, and considers our human relationships with light on the mind and body. Photographs appear to float and sway, bend and curl, reflect and absorb light, and rest somewhere in-between motion and stasis, presence and absence, material and immaterial.
This work was completed throughout the Hamilton Artists Inc. Cotton Factory Residency and Centre 3 Digital Media Residency in Hamilton, Ontario.
