The afternoon in the installation room yesterday, was a rather impromptu photo session with myself and Tab collaboratively taking photos of my 2 main works at the moment, the head cage, and the burlap bed. They had started off being completely separate and yet we had a breakthrough when combining these images that are so striking. We had continued using the ambience of the desk lamp as it gave the room a really beautiful tone, and manipulated the shadows created from the light source in such a magnificent way! The cage had started as a sort of mental prison, type construct, and by extending it out to the exterior, it allowed a transformation to take place, that was much clearer for the viewer to experience. The shadows suggest this sort of dark spectral manifestation, becoming outside of what you are. It also appears as some sort of demonic deity, weakening the power of the subject in the image- when they are a construct of one another.
