Doubles Doubled

At the root of contemporary desire is photography. Inspired by my new marriage, I use our apartment, as well as my husband and myself to examine and/or question the codes of desire in relation to the everyday. Using mostly objects, I anthropomorphize them for the means of psychological projection but also to the benefit of absurdity and humor. I often subject these objects to the same physical and virtual manipulation inherent from our society's codes. Through using anthropomorphism, I relate the pressures often placed on both the domestic, and our bodies to meet unrealistic ideals.
