The primary theme that my project will explore is that of non-heteronormative gender expressions. I am fascinated by the space that exists between masculine and feminine – how one comes to occupy this space and how it is received and understood by society at large. I want to use art to challenge the notion that this between-space is inaccessible and uninhabitable by exposing the constructions that give credence to the binary’s stability and innateness.
Background on previous work:
I worked as an ophthalmic photographer for four years, and used medical photographs that I took at my job in a project called Florafaunal Angiography. The focus of the project was to combine the anatomical process of sight with the aesthetic result of seeing. I also made a handmade book called Scotoma, which deals specifically with "blind spots" (physically and conceptually).
I have a theory about this that I can not, without great difficulty impose onto a piece of paper; or in this instance, a binary system of self-exposion.
