There are many reasons we find ourselves, at home, alone for extended periods of time. During these times, feelings of isolation, solitude, sadness, missing loved ones and recalling distorted memories may take place. In my work Dualities of Silence, I explore my space in the quiet and bittersweet, as well as the magical moments that otherwise would have gone unnoticed. This photographic study is informed by German philosopher, Edward Husserl’s theory of Phenomenology, which is the study of the structures of experience and consciousness, by studying my own environments’ essential qualities and inter-connectivity. I’m also inspired by French philosopher, Gaston Bachelard’s poetic metaphors of the home. I explore my own spaces, objects and lights contribution to the scenes. I use multiple cameras and image sizes to reflect the domestic and non-linear characteristics of the work in hopes of encouraging viewers to closer observe and explore their own spaces.
