I am on set, pacing back and forth. Excitement and tension swirl within. Only when I am convinced it is a feeling I cannot shake, am I then dragged to the present to meet the frame. My congregation of objects find their existence, allowing for a brief moment of euphoria before it all returns to the meaningless. I press the shutter. In my practice I play with the cinematic mise-en-scène. Stripped of plot and language, each scene invites viewer’s projections. There is no hidden thought or invention that clears things up, everything is part of a process that can never end.
