Built with Indexhibit

This installation is the result of an intensive documentary project of exterior and interior scenes of my childhood home, where my parents still live. The process of documenting the entire house and all the things in it is much like how an archeologist uncovers bones – slow, careful – thorough. I use a DSLR camera to take literally thousands of pictures to capture high-resolution details. Using multiple images, I digitally compose and reconstruct the spaces of the house. The house serves as a site for cultural and philosophical study of American landscape. I see all “this stuff” as evidence. I am presenting this evidence openly for anyone to examine. Each person will find different clues to affirm or reveal who they are.

For this exhibition viewers were invited to participate in a game of "finding things". This familiar form of visual play allowed the audience to spend some time with the work.
