scene and heard
are you happy
scene and heard combines reality and illusion by merging images of the california desert with unrelated snippets of conversation overheard in hollywood. the text is hidden in each photograph to emphasize illusive meaning, just as unspoken and veiled thoughts are often hidden in daily conversation. (mis) interpretations occur regularly as we innocently conjure stories and convince ourselves these thoughts are founded in reality. the truth is, there is no meaning except the one we create. similarly, the only meaning within these photographs is the one created by the viewer.
when seen together, the series appears to create its own meaning as a dysfunctional love story.
