Haul: Impressions from 2016

This sculptural work explores the physical space of memory. Rather than immortalize my family’s faces in photographs, I physically record their presence by casting wax impressions, which, due to the sensitivity and malleability of wax, reference memory by slowly changing over the course of time. These casts showcase negative rather than positive space. Illuminated from behind, the empty spaces my family once filled change shape depending on the viewer’s perspective, often taking on the illusion of being a positive rather than negative form.
