Artwork > Becoming Language

The work deals with issues related to memory and programmed vs. learned experience. How much does the outside influence our programmed DNA over generations? How do we know what we know? These multiple exposure photographs document the subliminal information we gather as we move within public spaces. This layering of information over time creates a condensed photographic portrait of those places our senses have adapted to, places that we no longer “see” even though we experience them everyday. The subject matter is representative of the ubiquity in our collective conscious, either through repeated display or everyday exposure. Both the culturally important and the mundane are represented, believing each can have it’s own impact on our perception over time. The resulting images contain subliminal markers of public information, from the ubiquitous buildings of corporate chains, to monuments of long forgotten war heroes.
