RITUAL: This work is part of an Installation that deals with Private and Public space. I have created a shower scene in a public space and contained within was light boxes. When the viewer first step into this space that are confronted with shadow boxes that contain blurred images. The viewer then opens the boxes to reveal a clearer image inside. Through this action the viewer is peaking into a private ritual that is taking place.

This series is entitled “Les Coméstibles.” This work pays close attention to the dramatic mise-en-scéne flooding today’s grocery stores. Our human necessity for food is one of the most basic primal instincts, and yet, in American consumer culture, we are faced with spot lights, presentation, and other excessive tactics to sway our decisions–especially in the context of the grocery store.
