My project revolves around investigations into notions of identity, specifically addressed through the semiotics of clothing and objects. It has been said that someone's possessions overall, depict a self that we strive to show others, building an appearance to exhibit a desired image, enabling us to explore how we are perceived and present ourselves to society. Possessions anchor and stabilise identity in space as they configure the world into a place of belonging, extending the self into the external world. My work focusses on the act of disembodiment where I have detached the identity of the former owner by photographing their possessions in the state that I found them, allowing the viewer to engage with the work through their imagination.
