Airtha Allegories: The Black Boxes, a Photo Sculpture Narrative
In order to further develop my series Airtha Allegories, I experimented with multimedia and it's capabilities to expand upon my concept while simultaneously producing more photographs. I am interested in the way meanings of three dimensional objects change when placed in relation to a two dimensional photograph.
The objects in the black box are relevant to both the fictional nature story illustrated in the photo, and the person who is depicted in the image, thus making a comparison between the imagined deity and the contemporary subject. The box itself is reminiscent of a memory box as well as the professional portfolio box.
This series has become a blending of artistic traditions and exploration of my own perceptions of memories and my models' place in my artwork and life.
