In my work I focus on the mundane as a means to convey inner struggle. In this series, I portray my husband and myself midconversation, adrift in the gap between words, where we interpret the thoughts, feelings, and subtext of the other. In this gap, we become acutely aware of either our success or failure to connect. Throughout the exchange, we are either metaphorically moving closer or creating distance. Failure to connect can lead to feelings of isolation and the realization that we are all actually alone, even within our illusion of limitless connectivity.
