During this strange and unparalleled time, images seem to form as moments from a vague dream, a distant future, or an uncertain past and fill our minds. They play out like scenes from post-apocalyptic films.
I worked with digital photos I took of an empty New York City, capturing the moments during the lockdown. This work is about disrupting the process toward becoming to metaphorically recreate the experience of the interrupted potential to form new memories at this time. Each image represents not only the interruption but also the destruction of memory before it fully forms.
