DRAWING THE LINE, 2012

IN COLLABORATION WITH MATT ALISON

DRAWING THE LINE IS A COLLECTION OF IMAGES TAKEN OVER FOUR TRIPS TO NORDIC COUNTRIES BETWEEN 2011 AND 2012 WHILE TRAVELING TO, LEARNING ABOUT, AND THINKING ABOUT RELOCATING TO DENMARK.

THE SERIES FOCUSES ON THE LINES WE DRAW, OFTEN SUBCONSCIOUSLY, TO ORGANIZE OURSELVES INTO A NEW SPACE. THESES LINES CAN BE PHYSICAL (AS CREATING A HORIZON WHEN ONE ISN'T VISIBLE) AND/ OR SYMBOLIC (AS THE LINKING OF PAST EXPERIENCES TO THOSE OF THE PRESENT.) THE CAMERA’S FRAME MIRRORS ONE’S OWN SCOPE OF EXPERIENCE: LIMITED AND PRE-ORGANIZED, BUT FILLED WITH INFINITE POSSIBILITY.

OBSTACLES APPEAR WHEN THE FOCUS IS SHIFTED TO ONLY WHAT’S IMMEDIATELY IN FRONT OF US. WITH THIS SERIES THE FOCUS IS INSTEAD SHIFTED TOWARDS THE HORIZON LINE. WHETHER UNINTERRUPTED OR DISAPPEARING INTO SPACE ITSELF, THESE PHOTOS LEAD US TOWARD THE UNKNOWN. AN UNKNOWN THAT IS SIMULTANEOUSLY THE MOSTAPPEALING AND DAUNTING CHALLENGE OF ALL.
