Abstract:

Photography and film have the power to communicate the haptic experience of mourning through the simple observation of objects, portraits and everyday routines. Everything In Slow Motion is a body of work that investigates my vantage point as caregiver to a life maturing – my son at age eleven – and to a life in retrogenesis – my mother at age eighty and in late stage Alzheimer’s. I photograph and film the minutiae of the everyday in an attempt to convey the simple but profound emotions of the life of three generations living in tandem.
How does one communicate endurance, and how does one convey a narrative of touch visually? In the video and photographic installation of my thesis there are a multiplicity of narratives within the year of a life in mourning.
