Influenced by my ongoing study of how individuals function within their physical and mental spaces, Rumination is an exploration of the balance between uncertainty and the struggle to support one’s self. This study depicts an internal conflict between two components of a human experience in the setting of a domestic environment seemingly devoid of settled inhabitants.
In this series of images, I use my body to project my encapsulated mental conflicts as physical forms. I do this by interacting with the structure of my apartment; embodying the sense of tension I feel within the environment that I call home. By challenging photography as a multi-dimensional medium, I narrate a visual language of the navigation of these spaces.
