This work is a visual inquiry into the personal spaces where our televisions reside.
This point of contact between the viewer and the world has become customary in contemporary culture —facilitating the exchange of information and the satisfaction of certain desires. We have developed a collective and public eagerness to peer into each others’ lives; we see this in our entertainment, news and the through the Internet.
If we view these individuals passively and voyeuristically—the way we view the world through the television—certain questions arise. How are we viewing one another and through which filters and forms of mediation? Through which lens do we find greater authenticity, honesty and clarity?
As these lenses of viewer, photographer, and subject coalesce and fold into one another, the viewer can make discoveries of their own. These images explore truth and honesty through portraiture where the television is no longer the crux of our understanding.
