During my residency at MASS MoCa, I have been pursuing the idea of Insincere Objects. Insincere in this body of work refers to the play of montage and photography with ideas of what is false, fake, and artificial as well as to the production of value through the photographic medium. Insincere also applies to the mediated nature of reality through the photographic medium.
The representational space of photography enacts all kinds of comparisons between physical space of “reality” and the flat space of the photo as it creates relationship to the production of desires – the photo becomes an image of both the desire and the desired.
