MFA Thesis Exhibition
Gallery Walk Thru:
Taken from the end of my thesis paper (linked below):
“The details in the photos themselves reflect my own daily living environment in Halifax. The term ecology is in part rooted in the Greek work oikos “house, dwelling place, habitation”, the space in which we live. It felt appropriate to have my current living space as the locus of these photo acts.
In this installation space, I felt it was important to organize the photo cassettes in ways that activated the body of the viewer. I hoped that there could be a questioning mode brought out in the space guided by haptic tangibility of manifest indeterminacies. As the photographic images have become dislodged from their context, I hoped to call into question the role of locality for what is currently present, emerging, and withdrawing. The two extremes of
Satan Knew This Was Coming
You Knew This Was Coming
are orienting declarations
not taken for their truth values but instead
existing in a space of evaluation
whose syntax points towards the presence of uncertainty and the
yet to be determined future”
All images within the cassettes were shot on the Fujifilm instax Wide 300.
Each cassette is filled with all of the remaining shots taken for this series.
The thesis was originally printed on Thermochromatic Receipt Printer Paper.
Scans of the thesis are found in the attached pdf (found above).
