Narrative / South Korea
Places I, or others, stayed remain as images. These places, in which we stared and felt differing emotions, are fixed as scenes. The photographic images I use represent those parts of a place where gazes fell and rested. They exist as a means of recording often incidental, yet always subjective, memories.
In my work, the concept of space is just as important as the image. The spaces that the images depict (both directly and indirectly) could be seen as metaphorical mediums. They may represent empirical memories of places visited and stayed in.
Likewise, they could also signify virtual spaces in which memories have become confused or conflated. Finally, they might also be seen as redolent of abstract spaces in which memories are entirely reconstructed or imagined. Through these ambiguities, I hope my work is visually engaging, but also has a wider value based on common experiences and thought processes.
