TODAY, 2012
(Video Installation)

My artwork titled “Today” depicts a day in the life of a near to retired couple. It explores the banalities of everyday situations and puts emphasis on small details and mannerisms as actions are carried out. The work exhibits three projections onto three sheets set up in a box like shape, with intent for the audience members to feel immersed within the varied situations presented. Close family relationships have inspired this work, as the subjects are my parents and this has important relevance to the end product. The process of recording their life activities enabled me to connect with my world in a new way and had immense impact on the meaning for me, personally. With the ambition of creating an empathetic connection between the audience and the subjects within work, it includes realities that are relevant or will be relevant to all people at certain times within their lives.
