Hinge (2016) (from the series, Snapshots for Material Consideration),a collection of photographs, objects and assemblages, considers the rematerialization of the photograph, focusing on the tangible quality of the photo paper. Single contained pictures are fragmented by repeated gestures of crumpling, cutting and tearing; photo surfaces are scored, scarred and inked obscuring and removing the original context, focal points and indexical information. Glue, staples, tape, wax, plaster and paint are used to rebuild the surfaces, to reformulate the dimensional connotations of the photograph. The resulting photo-sculptures are photographed and presents as images, distinct yet curiously contingent on their original source.
