This body of work explores the function of a photograph and the photograph as a social object. Focusing on the current pandemic which has separated loved ones, capturing and exploring the themes of longing for each other, love, separation and their connected disconnection in a multitude of diptychs, portraits and woven sculptural pieces. The compositions take you on a journey resembling a story like sequence.
The series begins with an archival image of my great-grandmother, which my great-grandfather turned to during the war in order to hold on hope for their future and reconnection, instigating the recurrent aesthetic of the green backdrop throughout the series as a connection between the archival and digital imagery. For this specific exhibition, which allows for a limited number of submissions, the viewer can see a selection of my woven sculptural pieces portraying the connected disconnection; with the process exploring the pixelation of modern-day technology as we try to stay connected from afar.
