The works “Flight” and “Enclosure”, from a series titled “Mergence”, combine various imagery, locations, actors, and notes from the picture making process to ask questions about the realities and fictions in the medium of photography. “Flight”, photographed in a planted forest, and “Enclosure”, photographed in a nature reserve, both show planned landscapes. The works also include two traveling characters, played by the same person, that imply a narrative of change. Details from the picture making process, such as handwritten notes and computer code, are woven into the works, in an attempt to continue to question what a photograph can look like while also speaking to the making of a digitally constructed image.
