I’D LANGUISH IN YOUR DUST
Sex is both universal and completely unique. It is so personal that it feels like you’re inventing it. But often, photography about sex is clinical, to the point where sex is mistaken for a visual experience rather than a visceral one. This work is extremely personal, so each piece interprets emotions and thoughts as they are felt through my body. My goal is to express these experiences honestly and with vulnerability. Text acts as a memory catalyst, allowing the viewer to emotionally enter the work and recall their own intimate experiences. Bound together by red and the circle, the text is enlivened by photography, video, and installation, creating a incubator of intimacy and the transformative memory of being in love.
