My work deals with the loss of time and memory, and the attempt to retrieve it through making art.
The NYC subway is a timeless, random universe where countless strangers move in un-choreographed patterns through precariously defined spaces. Infinite combinations of sight, sound, light, shadow, movement and interaction occur as we travel through these subterranean and elevated spaces. Glimpses of familiar strangers and fleeting narratives emerge, evolve and disappear like ghosts, only to be repeated slightly differently, over and over again, like a film loop of vague memories imprinted on our subconscious.
THE PASSENGER, a series of single exposure, unaltered cell phone images of the NYC subway system, conveys the gritty, lyrical and strange experience of subway transit, using a medium that now seems crucial to both our existence and survival in this particular realm.
