As an artist, my work is influenced by performance and challenges the very essence of photography. I am particularly drawn to acts of absurdity, risk taking and endurance. I read an article in a science journal some time ago. It stated that if a terminally ill patient is given a suicide device and are made aware of the fact that they are able to end their life at any time they feel appropriate, it unexpectedly leads to their life to being significantly prolonged. It seems paradoxical and illogical that a device designed to end someone's life can actually extend it. It also seems beautifully illogical to me, to document a performance that has not yet been performed.
