Photography is my tool for examining how lives interconnect, how ideas converge and bounce off of
one another, and how the world is changing moment to moment. I pluck images from the real
world to model it, to concretize my idea of it.
My current work is produced through collaboration with devised performers and landscape, which
aims to address the tensions between fiction and non-fictional forms of storytelling through an
emphasis on process and materiality.
Elise Tak's work is a representation of a representation, THE symbol of fiction: Cinema! Tak
meticulously chronicles the lives and careers of 10 world-famous movie actors. All are pure fiction.
The artist LIES!
I am interested in the relationship between memories and architectural spaces. Memories can be
glamorized and distorted. Especially, when we consider the spaces we think we know, each has
different perspectives in one's mind.
