Work > Mama's Clothes

In the series, “Mama’s Clothes,” I explore the experience of absence and the camera's role in visualizing that which cannot be seen but felt. I examine the paradox of abundance within absence and materiality as a threshold. Using my mother’s garments, I transform the fabric to read as ectoplasmic, surrogate skin. In the series, I am looking at ways I can facilitate and construct a visual place where I can conjure her presence while using my body as a medium.
