Human perception, especially self-awareness, is the central concern of my art. In my work, I think about thinking.
During the past year everyday events began to unravel. Time stuttered, important interests lost their power, trivial thoughts became preoccupations. I felt dry, as if my empathy had disappeared and with it the joy of creation. My photographs show dark, hard, metallic pieces of equipment—machinery of storage and control.
The ostensible subjects of the photographs are photographic objects. In studying them, I see that, without intention, I have made a portrait of myself. I have begun to find my way back from lifelessness.
