Place for Belongings
In response to artist and writer Paul Chan's musings of Where Art Belongs, I began to think through ways that objects both define a person and posses that person. In "Place for Belongings" I compose a situation of various objects and images that contain traces of their previous owners. I wanted to create a space where these objects could work together to suggest a new disembodied presence.
