Between Wash Cycles depicts petrified silences existing in abstract space. Amidst thought and consciousness there exists a suspended space of silent non-thought. By interrupting the fabric of the paper, Between Wash Cycles seeks to detail this void.
If a photograph is an index to a part of our history, how do we index the lost moments? Through the manipulation of the paper surface and it’s evolution into an everyday object, a patina is formed through washing and ironing, sanding and varnishing. The photographic recollection now eroded is embellished by practising the necessary maintenance actions which delineate human experience.
