Death As If

Toward the end of her cancer, my mother received hospice care at home. Her dying, then comatose, and eventually deceased body was on a bed in the living room. This room was open and visible from the kitchen and the staircase to the bedrooms. The vulnerability of human mortality was omnipresent.

In Death As If, I stage photographs in my apartment that explore the human desire to control nature and environments despite our lack of control over our own mortality. The metaphorical scenes in these images are influenced by my own anxiety following the untimely death of my mother.
