there is no there there
Through the processes of magnification and isolation my work concentrates on the examination of the surfaces and materiality of objects and substances found within the domestic space. Transforming these banal materials into a state of otherness, I consider their ability to demonstrate the boundaries of self.
there is no there there is a continuation of this practice. The images and sculptural artwork presented, explore the potential existence of physical boundaries between the real and unreal worlds within smartphone devices.
This is a technology that has resulted in our perception and projection of self becoming increasingly complex as our personalities exist in fragmented forms on both sides of the screen surface.
Through the exploration of the screen’s surfaces and hidden edges this work questions where the separation of these real and unreal worlds may physically occur and what, if anything, exists within these spaces.
