ACCUMULATED (WORK IN PROGRESS)
Accumulated is an ongoing series conveying how external influences shape our inner emotional landscapes. These influences build up and accumulate but their effect is always nontangible, and only becomes visible as behavior patterns reflecting underlying emotions. This correlation is viewed in comparison to the way different textures are shaped in the natural world.
The series is an attempt to express and give form to these intangible effects by engaging with this parallel dynamic in nature, which is more visible and palpable. It looks into how a certain arrangement found in nature can resonate on a personal level and reflect a mental or emotional state. Photos of natural textures and performative portraits are shot in different places and in different situations, but share a visual link which in turn reflects an emotional/sensory association.
