self-reflective process using photographic installation materials, I explore
the ways imagery becomes compulsion. Stepping into my own vanity, loss, and heartbreak, I survey Instagram, Facebook, and iphone archives to explore the direct impact of imagery on our physical environments and social landscapes. My work traces these rituals across past, present, and future photographic objects and materials that interact with our imagination of ideals and projections of the self . For me, the photograph is always nostalgic. The lost, the longed-for, and the absent keep me constantly looking backwards
to understand the process by which our embodied performance with the camera composes our collective mythologies.
