Neuroscientists tell us that our individual and ever present experience of life is nothing more than an elaborate hallucination. Our consciousness constructs an illusion for us to make sense of the innumerable electrical impulses that cascade into our brain from our five senses every second we are alive.
My photographs are my hallucinations.
A recurring thread for me is the disorientation and disruption of the viewer’s most comfortable hallucinations. To do this, I attempt to alter the viewer’s subject orientation by using a palette of blur, shapes, lines, and color.
If I inspire the observer to move beyond a simple interrogation of the subject of the photograph to question their own self-constructed reality, then I feel my work has meaning.
