Statement: My work hacks into the photographic memories of strangers, primarily by using bioluminescent fungus as the light source for exposures of found negatives. I?m harnessing the communicative properties of the light the fungus emits as a metaphor for the ever-changing state in which we hold memories; and the way genes mutate and the world of photography evolves. I see a connection between photography and genetic inheritance, memory and how people, including myself, position themselves amid these elements.
