The Space Between Words

Taking inspiration from glitch art, the images of the Space Between Words attempt to use flaws in digital technology to expose the identity of the subject in a way that diverts attention away from the expected notions of what history has dictated photographic portraiture to be. Subjects were asked to preform a task, to remove their clothes as fast as possible, in which they would be forced to achieve the request in a way that would be unique to them. Through the performative act by the subject and the extended and broken method of image capture, the images of the Space Between Words examine how the body as recorded through non-traditional processes can convey as much or more expression of the individual than traditional methods.
