The Unfulfilling (2019)

By leaving a gap between photographs, the camera mechanism denies the potential of this small piece to become image, like the spaces to its right and left. The lightbox materialises the idea of being wasted, sacrificed. In photography, light activates the image, but here it uncovers a blank space, a lack.
