Photographic performance and video: ‘I wanted to capture my personal feelings of anxiety in having to navigate continuously through technology in our digital environment. How I feel trapped in my habitat such as the suffocating pressure of presenting your identity online to others. The performative experience of physicalising these invisible facets for the camera/video camera left me with an enormous feeling of satisfaction in visually expressing how I felt internally.’ 2018.

Waiting Room express an idea of being hold in a place, waiting for someone. Time goes by and people aren’t moving, the trace of different moments abolish the painting. It also reflects an era of people watching other, putting on her best “outfits”.

In this essay the images hover between reality and concepts to examine the way in which we view the world, our dreams and imagination fuelled by drives and desires. At the same time it intends to give the viewer space to delve into their own imagination and thus continue the story.
The domestic habitat is the ultimate known and therefore a context of uncertainty carries much more weight symbolising a rupture between the subject and the context.
The questions asked by the images in this essay are no longer about people, who seem to have vanished, but about its very raison d’être.
