The purpose of this installation is to deceive the viewer, and to raise questions about what is real.
A Conversation Between My Father and I
Two-part installation. Homemade slides from my film photography across one year, self-repaired overhead projector; accompanied by a short film of my father viewing slides of his own photographs, which were taken when he was 18. Upper right-hand photo shows stills from the film.
The most important part of this installation is the process; the steps of recreation and connection between my father and I.
