A Morphology of Luxury
(2012-ongoing)

In this project, I have documented the front and back of each item contained in a box of selected convenience foods. The items in the project were collected from convenience stores and grocery stores in Canada and the United States. Using a simple background and relatively uniform lighting, my intent with this project is to, as best as I can, document the form of each of the items with as little alteration as possible from their condition as sold. The resulting images are arranged and printed in grid at a scale this is approximately life size.

In the Spring of 2015, I presented a few of these pieces in an exhibiton with poet Jacqueline Valencia for which she wrote and performed poetic responses to the images. You can read her poems here.
