Pom-pom Pink / Duct-tape Silver

2010, archival pigment prints

For Pom-pom Pink/Duct-tape Silver my daughter performs in front of the camera to transform the everyday into a contemporary nursery rhyme, fairytale, or modern day myth. In these images, she models nonsensical costumes, role plays in make-believe, or poses with one of her own artistic creations.  Ranging from the cute, quirky, disturbing, to violent, I see these open-ended, seemingly ambiguous moments situated between sociological document, dreamscape, portraiture, performance, and theatrical tableau.
