Description

Over time, photographs lose their original meaning in a viewers mind. New attitudes, facts, and feelings can be projected onto a photograph as a result of a negative experience. The image might even just get lost in a pool of memory. As the image is revisited, the viewer begins to fabricate attitudes, emotions, and even memories that will eventually become their reality.

With this idea, I visited places where I have had experiences that I wish to alter. When I arrive at this location, I take a Polaroid photograph of the isolated landscape. By taking such an unremarkable photograph of the location, I will over time create new “feelings” and new “experiences” that I can associate with that location and visual. The images presented are enlargements of the actual Polaroids.
