ARTIST STATEMENT: Projecting images of nature on a wall, I placed my body within the scene to explore how it can interact with the imagery. Once projected onto the wall I then re-photographed the image as it is projected onto my body creating a relationship with the landscape, one of distortion and harmony. My images depict my desire to make connections and explore the ways we communicate with ourselves and our environment. How we become aware of our internal desires and fears through our own actions, as well as how the environment can determine our emotional landscape. There are degrees of vulnerability that arise from the different interactions whether it internal, with our environment or with others. The images are about the types of connections that result from these vulnerabilities and how that creates the structure of our personal realities.
