ARTIST STATEMENT SHADOW SELF OUR SHADOW SELVES ARE OFTEN HIDDEN FROM US. IT ISN’T UNTIL WE CAN SIT WITH OURSELVES FOR A LONG TIME THAT WE GET TO FEEL THE TRUE FLEETING NATURE OF OURSELVES. ANY SENSE OF KNOWING IS EPHEMERAL AND APPEARANCES CAN BE DECEIVING. WHAT WE MIGHT THINK WE ARE PROJECTING IN ONE DIMENSION, MAY NOT COME OUT THE SAME IN ANOTHER. IN THIS PIECE, I REFLECTED ON THE MULTIDIMENSIONALITY OF PROJECTING THE SELF IN NUMEROUS FORMATS. FROM ONE DEVICE TO ANOTHER, MY SELF APPEARS DIFFERENT. I FEEL AS IF I AM MORE MYSELF IN PHYSICAL FORM. BUT, IT IS LIKELY THAT, SIMILAR TO WORKING WITH SHADOWS, EVEN THE PHYSICAL AND WHAT CAN BE SEEN RIGHT IN FRONT OF US HAS THE SAME ABILITY TO DELUDE US.
