Site specific lay downs around Earth
2006 - 2026 (ongoing)
This series started in 2006 and will finish in 2026.
This project started out in 2006 as a reaction and counter balance to the cliché “tourist photo” which has now become a cultural phenomenon known as the “Selfie”. Laying down on the ground in various locations around Earth wearing the same red sweater reflects my ongoing curiosity with self-presentation in public and private spaces and the document of the here and now, injecting the unusual into the familiar. There is a recurrent insistence to document the present while remembering the past, to keep a connection to tradition and a conservation of our social and cultural relationships to the landscape around us. This is how I remember.
