Him-1 - Mortality Series

Him-1 - Mortality Series

The “Mortality” series begins to explore an issue we all shun: our own ever changing identities. It is an attempt to reconcile the viewer with the knowledge that change is unavoidable and to actually seek and make the best use of the moment when we all realize that one part of ourselves has to be ended in order for the rest of us to grow. In using the male/female dichotomy, the viewer is led along the path of deterioration of a relationship that has two outcomes: the embrace of a new identity or the shame of losing an identity that can not be reclaimed. Color was used to depict the decay of the “body” of the identity - reds and oranges to represent the flesh transitioning to the blues and whites to depict the final decay of the bones of this identity. The physical instillation of the series also led the viewer through the progression of the decay, by forcing the viewer to walk level with the images and follow the changing planes to capture the energy of the "decay”.
