This series is a depiction of once forgotten origins living on in otherworldly spaces. It speaks to concepts of displacement in identity, curiosity towards potential thresholds, and finding certainty in the self through heritage. Once forgotten images are manipulated, then preserved in a space that alludes to a threshold between the real world and the infinite universe. A sense of nostalgia is melded with a contemplation of eternity. The subjects in the portraits become immortalized in a space that is familiar in its generality, but ethereal in its aesthetic.
