I’m interested with the metaphor of the invisible that surrounds us. Each of us has a unique microbial profile that interacts with other’s microbiome, and can be detected in a given place long after we have vacated it. For me, this idea questions the border of the self – where we as individuals stop, and where ‘we’ as community begins.
The majority of these works are part of a larger series that I’ve created at Kala Art Institute since December of 2016. As an Artist-In-Resident, and more recently as a Parent-Artist Fellow, I’ve had the pleasure of working in the Kala printmaking studio.
For many of these prints, I’ve used mugshots from the 1920’s, and given each individual their unique microbial cloud that hovers above them. I was taken by the gaze of the subjects of these photographs – particularly the women. The men of this photo series were mostly career criminals, and were in police custody for burglary, gambling, racketeering, etc. The majority of the women were there as abortionists, some with additional trumped-up charges. The look in their eyes read as defiant, proud, as well as scared.
