How should we question that which recurs daily: the prosaic, the quotidian, the background noise? We conduct ourselves as though the everyday carries neither questions nor answers. Through collage I seek proper answers to those unasked questions. My work resonates those evasive answers as they float somewhere between dream and memory, the subconscious and the conscious.
Eidetic draws upon secondary elaboration: a person’s free associations on symbols, signs, and metaphors presented by a dream. Through the use of found images, this body of work examines the ostensible nature of photographs, bringing together disparate narratives to construct a new, introspective one. The images drift in and out of consciousness as notes and glimpses stand for the actual, while still allowing enough detail to assimilate a truthful understanding of a false memory.
