blind embossing on paper, 2013
Ghost Room is a series of blind embossings made from my own family’s portrait photographs. These specific photographs depict people that have passed away before I was born –all I know about them is what was preserved in the memory of my living relatives. The final images are purposely difficult to see and need specific lighting to be displayed. The work attempts to address the ephemeral nature of memory and the problematics of photography when representing the past and functioning as an object of memory.
