My current work is a depiction of New Orleans as seen through the eyes of a southern boy lost in the romanticism and despair of the stories and histories of this barely contemporary city. The work is a reaction to the psycho-geographic effects of a city whose past is prominently stained on its streets and façades. Experiencing this city has been the key to creating this work; walking its streets, stumbling on its stones all in an effort to participate in its existence. Games, referred to as dérives, are constructed and performed as a method of experiencing place; a tool used to immerse oneself in the chosen environment and to be affected by its ambiences. Personal adventures and memory become juxtaposed with the history of the city resulting in images that offer a surreal version of what is physically present. Depicting destruction, decay, loneliness and isolation, this is the vision of a silent wanderer, the vision of someone looking at the present while blindfolded by the past. This current work serves as call to be lost on purpose while knowing where one is going.
