Schis·matic Portraits
Project info

These photographic images show mannequins, rendered as color inversions, pared with inexplicit objects that are digital captures of real-time setups. I use analog procedures (involving LED, incandescent, refracted and reflected light) to find strategies of capturing images that suggest simulated life forms, objects and structures. I try to discover and record unfamiliar subjects that lie on the edge between still visual order and material displacement.

The pairing of abstract forms and images of mannequins attempts to show a visual conversation between something directly linked to humanity, and its supra-functional counterpart that is partially, but not wholly representative of the psyche. I am trying to understand variants of (projected) human equanimity and thought, demonstrated by duel images that move away from traditional narrative and its rational order.
