This body of work explores the understanding of literal and metaphoric attachments to intimate spaces I once had access to; my interest lies in memory, identity, and place. This investigation began with photographic documentation and then image deconstruction either digitally or physically. I employ the practices of photography, installation, and sculpture in a constant state of examination of space, form, and perspective. load - bearing occupies the space between familiar and foreign. Through the re-contextualization of images, intimate objects, and raw construction material, I edge closer to understanding the lasting impression of space and the way memory can eclipse experience.
