Queer Dimensionalities
2020

As a queer person, I’ve thought a lot about what it means to be seen in culturally mainstream ways, while being largely imperceptible at the same time. While out on walks around my neighborhood in rural Kansas, I photographed the subjects that I encountered most: grass, flowers, water, and my shadow. Given my interest in legibility and imperceptibility, I wondered what it might look like if my shadow was digitally obscured in the images. In departing from figurative representation, this work adapts queerness as a way to perceive orientations that are difficult to depict through normative cultural frames. At the same time, this project was an opportunity to represent queerness in my own terms; specifically those that are textural, spatial, and atmospheric.
