Am I Dead, Dear?, Installation, 32” x 32”, 35mm photographs
This series explores mental illness both in the individual and collective sense. Author and spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle explains that the ‘normal’ state of mind experienced by most human beings includes a strong element of dysfunction or even madness. Am I Dead, Dear?, explores perception and reality by releasing internal, dream-like imagery into the waking realm of everyday life using Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí’s paranoiac-critic method…

This series explores mental illness both in the individual and collective sense. Author and spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle explains that the ‘normal’ state of mind experienced by most human beings includes a strong element of dysfunction or even madness. Am I Dead, Dear?, explores perception and reality by releasing internal, dream-like imagery into the waking realm of everyday life using Surrealist artist Salvador Dalí’s paranoiac-critic method…

Am I Dead, Dear? Series, 35mm Photographs, 6” x 10”, Archival pigment prints 

The paranoiac critic method believes that an individual’s relationship to social contexts, personal history, and innate psychological disorientation correlate directly to their perception.

Am I Dead, Dear?, continued…

Each photograph is a metaphor, open to multiple interpretations, for mental illness and social critique. The high contrast images are placed together on a tight grid, creating a world for the viewer to step into and explore survival, struggle, awareness, and the ephemeral nature of life.

“When you live in a world deadened by mental abstraction, you don’t sense the aliveness of the universe anymore. Most people don’t inhabit a living reality, but a conceptualized one.”

-Eckhart Tolle
