The Fabric of Time
My photographic installation uses the feeling of touch to make a sensory recreation of lost history, through the medium of a family album. Family albums are often kept in perfect condition and the images remain behind a protective layer of plastic, stored out of sight, quietly preserving a moment in time. My work reverses that tradition by taking images from the safety of their album and repurposing them to create items commonly found in the home. Having never met or known some of the family in the photographs, I force them into existence through my installation.
