space to be someone else is a silent narrative, a meditation on the concepts of autonomy and authenticity and whether they can be reconciled within the wider world.
Created within a very confined space, this series of photographs traces the journey of light over a period of several hours.
It is at once a mirroring of internal and external space, a rebellion against a perceived oppression of autonomy and the journey of an identity in progress.
It flips the concept of surveillance from endless external cameras designed to watch us, back to the original methods we used to use to understand the world and ourselves by observing phenomena over time.
This work is inspired by Heidegger's concept of 'Dasein' (being-there); the idea that a person's sense of self is relational, with an openness to the world, constantly projecting forward in time.
