The Baby Tooth Isn't Loose
Removed from traditional documentary framework, the images are distanced from any specific meaning to place rather choosing to focus on nuanced anxiety filled moments. In this construction, a fictional fantasy begins to form with emphasis on themes of discomfort that are based on artificially bound relationships. Dread and surface continue to show up repeatedly in the work. They are often illustrated by constructions of societal containment in looking at both discarded objects and discomforting uses of technology. Engaging with class and power structures, there is a duality to both seduce and coax an uneasiness. Overall fraught representations poke with human existence and fantasy through paradoxes in culture, geography, and class.
