Click.Share.Tag. is a large wall hanging made entirely of leather cut outs. This project explores the image-making within recent experiences of places as transient spaces within the attention-deficit culture.
Virtual lives sometimes seem more real than the physical. Many have become more social online rather than face-to-face encounters. How do we figure technology working in our lives? Sometimes it feels like we are run by the need to check up on our devices rather than allowing it to work for us. How often do we feel we need to check on our messages on our mobile phones? Every ten minutes? Every beep, note, or ring?
Click.Share.Tag. allowed me some respite from fragmentation and stitched together the experience of the ‘overwhelm’ into some sense of wholeness. Yet over and beyond that, I ask the viewer to participate by posing the image of the photographer in the foreground, resembling looking through a mirror and seeing the the whole scene behind him through the viewers’ eyes. The image of the selfie-taker in the background echoes the request to participate and reflect on our views on our fractured lives.
