In my work I concentrate on the space that remains after an object has departed; bringing item and location together. Through this process I anchor the nonexistent and the changed. The work derives from objects defining spaces and spaces defining objects. I am interested in translating the removal of space from those objects as a metaphor for human relationships and our intimate understanding of space through objects.
In this flag series I have isolated the tops of existing spaces creating an equal denominator between each space. Making the monetary value of each structure neither important nor visible. All four flags create an environment I once inhabited, but no longer have access to. Through time the architecture of these forms may have changed, however the generic light sources that hung from ceilings or were placed on nightstands are found on a regular basis as I survey the homes of others. Objects are usually discarded and their environment is left empty. I feel the architecture and these domestic items act as a reminder of each other’s presence.
