The Uncanny is a word describing a sense of dread. It arouses horror when something is unfamiliar but has a sense of familiarly about it. This is a key feature in my work. By playing around with the human form, something so familiar to us, we begin to feel this sense of dread It is this which shaped this series of work. The idea of burnt photographs is a strange concept. It begs the question of why someone would burn these photographs, then project them on a body. It is like the human form is replacing another in the photo, as though the creator didn’t like the original so is manipulating it so someone else can take their place.
