Description

My dia de los muertos box; my first attempt at something quasi-narrative with mixed media in a gigapan. Memorializing anything sentimental in my closet resulted in the overwhelming but neccesarry amount of narcissim that went into this.

Some notes: There are also a few links to my videos and music embedded in the snapshots i've taken which help explain all the items on the wall, if you really want to get a sense for how the items all relate to one another. There's a lot of time-related photography/virtual reality/time items that I like to think give the viewer a sense of evaporating memories and time. There's also two of the same watch that relate to the process and allude to the fact that the photograph is composited from 120 individual photographs taken at different moments, creating an illusion of a precise moment that never actually occurred at all. In the next piece I do like this, I'm going to attempt to elicit the same idea with a drop of water caught in mid-air or a falling glass.
