In the Form of "Well-Lit Room"

 

This is a piece currently in development. The initial R&D has been supported in a 6 month works-in-progress cohort through Red Eye Theater. 

This work uses chromakey altered live-images to visibly remove objects from a scene. The disappearing of objects is explored through the Ontological theory of tool-being (Harman), which understands that objects disappear when they perform their function seamlessly enough, appearing not as a tangible and real thing but rather as a series of effects and relations. I, as the artist, expose how I am making images as I create them to try and understand how I became disappeared in an abusive relationship - how I became invisible in being forced to function in the service of someone else.
