Echoes of Home

Statement

10 ft by 15 ft by 8 ft

In Echoes of Home, I created a domestic interior that allows viewers to engage with memories of homes that were once were inhabited, spaces that I have explored. I used light boxes as windows, portals that linked the viewer to distant landscape. Each light box held a moment, immortalized by the camera.

On the shelf, I laid out objects that I found in abandoned homes. Pairing photographs of these deserted and abandoned environments with found personal items provided a physical connection to the spaces in the glowing images. The items collected are objects one might find in a child’s bedroom, such as a worn, dust caked teddy bear and a partially melted action figure. These objects were well used, but have been forgotten.
