Artist's Statement

This work explores the intersection of memory and fantasy, seeking meaning in experiences that feel significant to us as individuals, while attempting to access universality and connectedness. Reaching for the intangible, for something more than one’s own perceived reality, the work uses generational processes to distill an image to its talismanic essence. Beginning with macro photographs, each stage of the process serves to accentuate specific information. Subsequent processes such as cropping, Xeroxing, photo transferring and projecting, redefines the image further. Just as each recalling of a memory alters it forever, these processes contribute to the loss of certain information and the emergence of other.
