ARTISTS STATEMENT
I tried to embody the gaudiness of my room in this shoot - whether I was wrapped in lace or draped like iridescent silk across the Persian rug. In this respect, I felt the project was an opportunity to look at myself in a more ornamentalist light - as a feature of shape and colour complementing the room. It was a joyous escape from the restrictive standards by which I typically analyse photos of myself: formulaic ideals of hip to bust ratios, the perverse parabolas of a concave waist. Art aside, I also found the project rather titillating. Iíve always enjoyed the idea of being perversely spied upon, and I think this is the most ethical incarnation of that.
