Jenny (lacuna detail), 2009

digital c-print, 5" x 5"


An interactive installation of photographic reproductions, titled lacuna, creates a constellation of recollection, as transient in nature as memory itself. Seventy small-scale images hang on the wall, some as stacks of reproductions waiting to be peeled away by the public. Throughout the duration of the installation as the images are removed they fade and reveal an impression in Plexiglas of the image that was once there. Place and person become symbol and impression in the work creating an emotive narrative suspended in the gap between, a man straddling dementia, a boy in his teenage prime, hands cradling the last harvest of raspberries.
