In this body of work I investigate the emotion of desire. My exploration ranges from investigating consumer desirable objects to addressing the longing for a more pure and long-term fulfillment in life. I look at possible substitutions and project my own desires indicating a longing for a different, more intense, pure life that involves an idealized dream of living in the country.
I believe my search touches upon today’s Zeitgeist containing a layer of dissatisfaction, unrest, and a longing for change hidden in most of us.
