i think not



I think this feeling is going to last a while. This feeling of uncertainty. This feeling that we are born into a world that already has set expectations and constraints for us. We never know what is going to happen next. We don’t have control.

I take damaged film negatives, where the film emulsion has been stained with photographic chemicals or where the surfaces are scratched beyond any practical use and repurpose them as projectections. I alter these found negatives as a way to control and explore the uncertainty that comes with the nature of photography. By manipulating light sources, film negatives, and camera adjustments, I am able to fabricate a new reality- a reality that I control.
