These photographs of domestic interiors document the accumulation of time.
A mirror and a pastoral painting hung in this space, unmoved, for over sixty years. The cardboard backing pressing into the mustard walls. These organized things in space prompting a familiarity with the room and the family.
The dismantling of a life, of a space, reveals the traces of presence. In unpacking the home, what is revealed emotionally and physically hold these evidences of time.
Stacks, residue, cardboard boxes, mold, dust, stains, discolorations, odors.
The unmarked mark.
The left to it’s own devices, the transfer of one to the other. Ghosting.
The component of light, moisture and acidic paper in stale spaces.
The life span of a material.
