The World Outside and the Pictures in my Head
installation from WE ALL COME FROM SOMETHING at the Gallery of Art at The University of Missouri
These photographic digital collages are from an ongoing series, The World Outside and the Pictures in my Head.
The collaged photographs and videos in The World Outside and The Pictures in my Head reflect my childhood and adolescent efforts to find my queer self through watching Noir films on television. I revisited films I first saw as a child/adolescent and shot still photos with my iPhone as I watched the movies on my tv screen. From these hundreds of 4 x 6 inch photos I created large, collaged digital photographs as well as two videos.
