One Millimeter Away From Stillness, Light-box print, glass, wood, projector, Variable dimensions, 2013

My artistic practice focuses on the frontier between the photographic image and the actual world. The speed in which images appear and disappear in contemporary society prompts demands for deceleration and presence. Combining the physical presence of objects with photographs, which traditionally document past events, makes the image itself appear more present at the moment of viewing. Breaking the two-dimensional plane locates the focus between the space and the surface. The photographs function not only as windows onto another time and place, but as mirrors that reflect actuality back to the viewer. My photographed still lives, found images and sculptural objects aim to establish connections that playfully question the conventional order of things and the objectivity of the scientific worldview.
