We live fixations. Fixations of happiness. We comfort ourselves by reliving memories of protection -Gaston Bachelard, Poetics of Space
I wish to walk the line between memories and experience, knowing and not knowing, past and present, acceptance and criticality. Images become symbols of experience, and of desire. I wish to explore these icons of happiness, their underlying meaning, and the dissolve of these images as symbols of strength and completeness. In this case, images of fictitious happiness take the form of automobiles, suburban neighborhoods, the office space: a contemporary American landscape.
