MA work

By creating ambiguous images in which identity and singularity are called into question, I aim to examine the limits of photographic representation.


How can an image define what it records? Where are its boundaries? In successive images, what falls between? If two figures are conflated what is produced? An apparitional space perhaps, a vibration or even a re-figuration.


Repetition is constituted, maybe, not from one present to another, but between the two coexistent series that these 


form in function of the virtual object.
