ARTIST STATEMENT: I am interested in exploring a certain discomfort of leaving in the contemporary world, related to how the social superstructure shapes identity and memory. With my current project Digital Deli I set out to investigate the visual vernacular and the inevitable image consumption of mass communication culture. I am interested in decoding the signs of the disorienting post-modern visual landscape (both real and virtual). I investigate the everyday looking for cues to understand the uncertain dimension I find myself now and the related feeling of displacement. I am attracted by the generic and the mundane, and I focus my attention on subtle details that can unveil new worlds. I am fascinated by the possibility of unifying opposites by juxtaposing, deconstructing and re-contextualizing images that are, on first viewing, different but related on a much broader level. To analyze visual pollution and the saturation of the semiotic sphere, I use a variety of traditional and modern photographic tools and embrace a diverse visual lexicon. I reference and sample stylized commercial imagery and cultural artifacts; I collect visual fragments and cultural leftovers and I assembled them in sculptural compositions. I re-photograph and collage both my work and appropriate images. I use humor and kitsch to force connections and raise questions, while not necessarily telling a story. Ultimately I am interested in exploring the fine line between reality and fiction and how photography and its inherent artifice fill the gap.
