On the quiet
This work plays with several different levels of imparting information. The work is of a small scale letting only a seductive black and white photograph to be recognized at first. This allows the viewer distance from the work giving them the opportunity to explore the image and search their personal interpretation. Once closer they are handed an additional resource in the form of a carefully chosen word that guides this experience in a new often surprising direction. The aim is to think more consciously about how we look and deconstruct art. How bits of information that are connected to nothing personal become more human when aligned to each other.
