Mortimer Dreams (current)

A little world of our own.
A scale model of that mysterious original, unbroken, half-remembered.
Chabon

As we head towards an indeterminate future, the imagined worlds of our distant past can come more clearly into focus. It is this world—that mysterious, unbroken original–that exists at the edges of memory and is the subject of my work. On the surfaces of city sidewalks, I build temporary compositions to construct illusory geographies. By manipulating the objects and light, I’m interested in generating unexpected images that emerge from the location, the accidental and the limitations of the camera. Making this work has lead me to think more closely about themes of worlding, longing and time.
