EMOH, 2010

2010, light box, 24 x 18inch

EMOH deals with the subject of alienation and detachment in relation to the concept of home and a place to live. Through staged photographs, I created upside-down domestic spaces with the girls lying and sitting on the floor / chilling to illustrate an inverted home with a sense of not belonging. By printing the girl on the transparent material on top of the interior image and framing these two images separately, I create a physical gap between these two images. As a result, there is no physical connections between these two images and a psychological sense of alienation appears. The title EMOH is a reversed spelling of HOME, which parallels the concept of the imagery representation.
