There is an enigmatic and mystifying place that every person that's ever lived has visited. We do so with an obscure regularity that we take for granted as conscious beings. The realm of our dreams is one with which we are all famaliar, where elucidation occurs as we are suddenly granted access to our innermost thoughts and where reality seems as distant from us as resolves to the things that eat at us from within. These answers lay dormant in our subconscious, and these inhernt truths are granted to us only though the effort of not overlooking this place we all frequent. "Parallels" is a series of 35mm slides that explores the sensation of confusing dreams wth reality and the altered reflection it shows us into ourselves.
Nature plays its vital role in this, as amessanger between humans and veracity from its magical and consummate place embedded in our souls. Through the boxes in which society stores us away and labels accordingly, and onto the grey areas- the mystifying- that is where humaity dwells, int he wealth of things beyond our understanding. There are indisputable truths in the reflections on a glassy body of water and harsh sun light through a leaf, veins exposed and vulnerable. These are experiences or occurrences that escape the logic of empirical materialism and our subconsciouses have carried these truths down throgh generations, passing the symbols along to us a parallel relm of etheral narrative.
When we confuse our dreams with actuality, there is a rason for it. This series reflects my time spent in this place- in the parallel dreamworld.
