Journey into Ink. 2000
The Release Into Ink Begins...(Part I)

"Naturallly, works of art create themselves & dream of killing their creators...they exist before the artist discovers them... its always Orpheus, always Oedipus..." 
                                      -Testament of Orpheus, Jean Cocteau.

 

This dream begins with a nightmare. A muse, lost of all memory, is imprisoned in an underground sleep, a captive to another Dreamer's dream. In order to escape her death, her own story must be uncovered and re-told through another.

This project is derived from the concept of Myth and Muse.
As photographer the goal was to re-construct a lost identity of self as muse.

"With a camera as my dream-catcher, I collect pieces of her story, open diary entries which seek the ink of memory and meaning. One step ahead and always a step behind in my pursuit of what seemed fleeting, i capture her through the subtle impressions, shadowed landscapes and where they would lead." 

 Let the Release into Ink Begin...
