My recent photographic work is set in a worn room, purposefully spare; a scene meant to reveal elements of the instinctual self, our private functions, comforting daily tasks, and personal gestures of ritual. Here, we are preparing for the world outside the room, or unwinding from that which it has put upon us throughout the day. I am interested in how this effort, repetition, and emotion translates to space through the body. The finished large format image is built from blocks on a grid which form another layer of worn structure, portraying, in concept, the condition of the room we are viewing.
