Maybe The Light Will Save Us
2013 - 2014

This project began as an exploration of perception. By building a series of apparatuses involving the act of looking, my intention is to present the viewer with opportunities. These invention-like objects are meant to recall the early cabinet of curiosity aesthetic, setting the appropriate mystical tone. Engaging the viewer with a set of cranks or knobs, I want the audience to approach these objects from a position of self-awareness; putting into perspective the individual in relation to their context, taking a step back. Acting as tools to help one see, instead of displaying a clear image they offer a more abstract or open-ended response which means to allow viewers to experience an alternate perception or point of view.
