Hospitalis figmentum, second installment

In the next two weeks I'll share with you some of my most recent work. This project features my sister, who is a doctor, in the hospital. There are a few doctors in my family and this series is an attempt to understand them and their trade. In this work, called Hospitalis figmentum, my sister plays a doctor character who interacts with her institution and simple medical instruments in mundane and yet slightly off-putting and absurd ways. Hospitalis figmentum references the history of Western medicine, and the cloak of mystery that surrounds it. Through my sister I try to understand medicine and my relationship to it in these images. Above are some of the first, and most straightforward images that we made. More to come in the next few days!

I'm sure this guy is watching lots of World Cup this week. Hopefully I will be too in Dublin!

Our rambunctious cat Voltron.

Tomorrow evening is the opening of a show that I am part of. It is curated by SVA MFA student Kate Greenberg and is part of her thesis show. I am sorry that I am going to miss it! William Lamson's work is also part of Greenberg's show. I have been a fan of his work for some time and am happy to have work along side his. Two of my "Domestic Interventions" images are in the exhibit. Kate I hope it is a great opening!

This book has been on my mind for the past few months. Tomorrow I am going to Dublin, Ireland with my father to photograph him and the city of his birth in relation to his favourite book: Ulysses. I will be gone for 3 weeks but I have scheduled posts for that time so it will seem as though I am blogging more than ever. See you in July!
