Outside[in]
Outside[in]He redeemed my soul from going down to the pit, and I will live to enjoy the light. (Job 33:28)People around the world are abused and manipulated every second. The abusers are often the most “unlikely” people, those who are upstanding in the community and could “never hurt a fly”. The abusers can also be a substance, one that takes control of the victim and traps him or her within themselves, ultimately becoming the abuser too. The victims are trapped in their own “homes” and their worlds are turned upside down. They dream about what others are doing. They constantly think if life is really what they endure, or if others are living life the way it should be. The victims inside long to be outside, where the others are. The victims long to be free.The images in Outside[In] are long exposure photographs of projections created by camera obscuras in residential spaces. This is done by blacking out all of the windows in the room to produce complete darkness. Then a small hole is cut in the cloth and covered with a precut aperture. The exterior projects through the point of conversion and onto the surfaces within the space. The photographs are then digitally processed and printed in correlating scales to the intimacy that the room holds. The end result shows a disoriented moment in a victim’s psyche. As if one is curled up in the space envisioning what life would be like on the outside.The installation, of the camera obscura is incorporated for the viewers to be immersed in a space where the outside and the inside meet. The overall space is constructed to provide an insight into the entrapment of addiction and how one longs to be free- outside of the addiction or abuse. The interior is flooded with the outside world that the entrapped yearn to escape. A place where they are no longer captive. A place where they are redeemed. A place where only redemption and innocence remain; where they can live to enjoy the light.
