MHz (megahertz) looks at the relationship between objects and their history. By focusing on left behind objects, this body of work comments on how things made by once seemingly stable industries experience decline, producing objects to be left as remains in storage or to rust and degrade outside. Individually each object may appear unrelated, but when isolated in images and then brought together in a sequence, they become connected through a narrative that is suggested by an individual’s interpretation and lived experience. The title is a reference to some of the objects photographed, but its definition of one million cycles per second aims to highlight the theme of how quickly common industry standards can change and be discarded.
