From confusion and impotence to the chaos in which my life has turned, at some point I come to a more subtle awareness of my true desires, personal mythology, to work with identity through the surrounding objects. In my house a mess and bringing order on weekends little difference. Things rarely turn on "their" areas, they accumulate.
It's chaos! It seems even they begin to live their lives; listing war, they have captured our home. Excess use of things interfere with their functional, they lose that for which have been purchased. With the help of photos, I am trying to find new meanings and forms in the conglomeration of things and understand my relationship with them, my relationship with space and itself.
